This is not true, Apache was given the code by Oracle. Apache is a great 
place for a project, they have many.  AOO just graduated to become a 
full fledged project after a careful, and time consuming, code review, 
incubator status.

I prefer AOO, Libreoffice has broken a feature that I rely upon.  Both 
run   fine on TDE, not sure what 'integration' offers me as a user.

I say try them both, try not to believe the FUD, fwiw, AOO has the 
Apache2 license, LO is GPL, this may be the reason for the FUD.
