I'm not so sure. While Linux desktop usage is an order of magnitude lower
than even Mac, most Linux users have one of the OO.o derivatives installed.
Most Windows or Mac users don't.
I'd like to see the numbers.
LibreOffice and OpenOffice clash over user numbers (OStatic)

See the difference? It is users vs. installs. This is mentioned in the linked article too.
You'll need data on how many Linux users actually use LibreOffice (as opposed to Google Docs, Abiword, Calligra, … or even no office suite at all).

There's also a difference between download vs install, and download vs use.
Ultimately any such measure is just an estimate.
Also, I use LibreOffice only to view documents I get sent or download. I've
opened LO maybe once a month. Does that make me a user or not?
