Where to, LibreOffice?

After a long time away, I find myself coming back to a word processor.  I'm
about to write for publication, and they prefer a word-compatible format.
I used to use OpenOffice a bit, and don't remember having any trouble with
it.  Now the repos seem to only have LibreOffice -- the things named after
OpenOffice seem to be all transitional packages, not really OpenOffice at

I've been at this a day, and I've already filed 3 bugs.  This does not seem
good.  Before I spend the effort to switch over to see if things really
*are* better over there, would someone please comment about the pros/cons
of downloading and using OpenOffice on xubuntu/ubuntu?
