What has happened to Apache OpenOffice was been entirely predictably.

Oracle's offer checked all of the boxes for ensuring that a project
would have no developer support.

It would be more accurate to say that LibreOffice has picked up the
goodwill, and cachet that OpenOffice.org had.

Between 2015-10-01 and 2016-06-30 there were 29,137,880 downloads of
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.2
Between 2017-01-01 and 2017-04-19 there were 10,748,967 downloads of
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.3

In as much as these figures are from SourceForge, they probably are
reasonably accurate. The big unknown is how many of these are "failed
downloads".

OTOH, things like the number of downloads from Cuba, San Marino, Monaco,
and The Holy See, imply that there is an issue with either failed
downloads, or accurate geolocation, or accurately counting of the downloads.

press and so on)?
