Actually, Libre/OpenOffice.org is nicely catching up in terms of smart font features and advanced typography:
The past releases offer better support for OpenType and there is also a very useful Graphite Font Extension for OpenOffice.org by Keith Stribley from ThanLwinSoft to allow greater control over the integrated Graphite renderer.
László Németh presented his impressive work on using Graphite's font features capabilities in OOo via a branch of the Linux Libertine open font called Magyar Linux Libertine G and a dedicated Typography tool extension. The development was supported by FSF.hu Foundation, Hungary.
