As a dedicated user of Open Office, is it necessary to uninstall that and install this (security wise and such)?

From The Document Foundation Wiki:
Once you have Beta3 installed on Windows you should be able to install OpenOffice.org or vice verse without mixing them up.
  • Expect some confusion concerning which application is launched (OOo or LO) when documents are double-clicked in the Explorer.
  • The Beta1 unintentionally replaced OpenOffice.org; This bug has been fixed in Beta2.
  • If you notice undesirable interactions between LibreOffice and OpenOffice.org in Beta3 or later, please report this as a bug.

Yep, I'm confused. Is LibreOffice not an updated OpenOffice?

Is OpenOffice still being developed?

Perhaps we should start a new thread to post our findings.

It will be the replacement but according to that site it is currently in it's 3rd Beta and should not be used for production.

OK Thanks! I thought it was the final release and not the Beta, Clifford should probably edit the posting to reflect this.

Well to be honest, I didn't study into very much. I was thinking they changed the name of OpenOffice.

First version of OpenOffice fork, LibreOffice 3.3, released



Download now - LibreOffice 3.3 Final (2011-01-25)
The Document Foundation has announced the official release of LibreOffice 3.3, a fork of Oracle's Open Office open source office suite. The LibreOffice 3.3 release follows Oracle's Open Office 3.3, which came out in December. You can download it directly for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

While LibreOffice 3.3 is based on Open Office 3.3, there a number of key differences, including an improved Windows installer that bundles a number of extensions that typical users would not have bothered downloading from the extensions repository. It also fixes a number of bugs in Open Office 3.3, including memory and startup issues. If you want to know all the details in the new release, check out the official Feature list.
