The full change of the name of the installation directory or application 
name is planned for future release because it requires more careful work 
to not break something. Both names are correct and I see no problem here 
for now. We decided to change some visible places (intro image, about 
box, some others) to reflect the new home and the slightly adapted name. 
And we also agreed to talk officially about Apache OpenOffice from now 
on. But as we have discussed it in detail, many users talk about 
OpenOffice only so it doesn't matter yet. If you have a problem with 
this approach you should start a new thread explaining it in detail that 
we can understand it.
