LibreOffice.
Had been waiting for years for stability improvements to the pivot table functionality in OpenOffice. Improved within 2 months in LibreOffice

Libre Office works good, but not perfect with Russian and other Cyrillic based languages. OOO does it now better.

Libreoffice ftw!

Openoffice is too buggy and slow..

OOo Impress takes nearly 6 times more system resources as LibreOffice Impress does.. For the same presentation.. I had very limited success putting together a presentation with more than 10 slides with graphics and pictures. Calc and Writer are better but overall I prefer LO.
