Libre Office was a fork of Open Office and is in my opinion more 
actively updated and is a very solid package.
If you only use word processing, Open Office writer is easier because 
with Libre Office you have to download the whole lot of Office programs.
However only Libre Office can read/write the current Microsoft Word docx 
file format.
Open Office cannot write to docx (unless they changed that recently).
