I like OpenOffice and use it for years. But now I’m wondering if it’s time to switch to LibreOffice. I know about discussions regarding Oracle, Apache and open source. But for an normal user, which one is better, what do you think?
Thank you for your opinions

Apache release May 30, 2012

You may find that language packs and dictionaries may be limited for the recent Apache release of OpenOffice if there are not other problems yet to be resolved. Thus at the moment I would suggest that LibreOffice is the stabler option.
