It's used for user settings and user-specific data (clipart, etc.).

BTW--I know of no way to make OpenOffice do what Oliver Grawert is
suggesting other than using some special whizbang scripts that somehow
changes the $HOME directory for each instance of the same user ID. 
You're probably better off having separate user accounts for each user.
