LibreOffice. Because these guys are heroes.
They saved a big bunch of GNU/Linux because Oracle is clearly not reliable, from an OSS point of view.

LibreOffice. Gave up on OOo when Oracle stamped their ugly name on it.

I think LibreOffice is the future, but man, they got some bad bugs to work out first.

OOo was good, actually very good, but heavy on resources
Still I'd go for that

All Debianites, be aware that the OpenOffice from the Debian repositories is actually Go-oo, and not the plain OpenOffice you would expect.

I suspect most distros will end up on LibreOffice, but for now it's OpenOffice. Abiword and KOffice just don't have the power or flexibility for heavy-duty word-processing.

Hi,

Openoffice. Haven't tried LibreOffice because of lack of time.

Kind regards,

Eric

OpenOffice. I have to do a lot of work from the office and OpenOffice fits the bill. But I am interested in LibreOffice as well.
