Oh well, at least the Linux distros backed the right horse.
I think ultimately LibreOffice will win out in the end. Mainly due to the personalities involved.
The LibreOffice crew are great to work with.
Compare a Rob Weir to a Michael Meeks.

I think it's purely a matter of marketing. What LibreOffice needs is a focused marketing campaign that involves users. Look at how successful Mozilla's Spread Firefox campaign was. I'm sure something similar for LibreOffice would be equally successful.

I agree. Although I think it's good that there is competition in the office suite space, OpenOffice has lost a lot of momentum during this transition. Maybe too much to catch up to LibreOffice.
