considering OpenOffice.org2  was released yesterday
(, and Hoary
was released in April, it's not surprising that you cannot find it;
and you will not find it in the future since Hoary has been frozen for
the last 6 months.

Version 1.9 shouldn't be too far from 2.0  feature-wise.  You can
always install OOo2 manually from their web site, upgrade to Breezy to
get a pre-release version of OOo2  very close to that official version
2 that was released yesterday, or wait for the next Ubuntu release
(Dapper next April) to get the real version 2.0.

Personally I have been using the version in Breezy for the last few
months, and it works pretty well for me.
