It's pretty sad to see a user-oriented FAQ carefully avoiding mentioning the existence of Libreoffice. A user who's not following all this may be somewhat confused by now and want to know what his/her options are. They pretty much consist of upgrading to either Apache Openoffice or Libreoffice. Some info on the pros and cons of those two routes would no doubt be welcome to a lot of people (licensing, features, OS support/focus).
I have no idea if the Libreoffice site is doing any better job of being less partisan. I guess they just point out that there isn't actually an AOO release yet and leave it at that.
My distro chose for me, and I have no complaints about Libreoffice or the transition - it just generally gets a bit better every time. (These days I can even expect powerpoint stuff to come out about right). As the article points out - GNU/linux users have little incentive for going back to AOO.
I must admit I had assumed that AOO was in the process of shrivelling up and becoming irrelevant, but it is clear that's not what's going to happen. I hope they can learn to be less defensive, and look at this from the user's POV.
