True, but IIRC this only happened after main developers left the project, huge companies (Google, 
Novell) have pledged support for LibreOffice and the community itself gave support to 
LibreOffice. Only then Oracle realised that it was left almost completely alone with OO and 
decied to pass the project to Apache. 

And I don't want to FUD anyone - I only want to remind how things were *two years ago*. Since then 
I have not used OO, so perhaps should not make statemetnts about it. Anyway Uwe, advice to try 
out both and choose the one you like is reasonable.
