LibreOffice right now IS 99.999999% the same as OpenOffice ( at lease 99%)
now over the next 5 to 10 years they will evolve differently but they will still be close
a quick history
"OpenOffice" owned by sun systems
bought out by Oracle
wanted to CLOSE SOURCE open office
birth of " libreoffice"
( fork of the OO source code)
mass job migration 90% of the sun/oracle OO devs QUIT
moved to LibreOffice
Oracle "saw the light"
And gave OpenOffice to the Apache foundation
