Parent article: An uphill battle for LibreOffice

I don't know what are the particular motivations of people who want better name recognition for LibreOffice, but I can think of two that involve more honorable goals than just ego stroking:

  • If LO is better than OO/AOO and people don't know about it, they have less office tool function available to them and won't be as productive.
  • If people believe OO is the best open source has to offer, and it doesn't compete against Microsoft Office as well as LO, then non-free software dominance benefits. Many people think that's a bad thing.
