Nice article.  The summary at the end is:

"The choice boils down to how they're implemented and how well their
features and development cycles match user needs. LibreOffice has the
edge in terms of regular updates, but OpenOffice releases feel
meticulously polished. If you want cutting-edge feature sets, go with
LibreOffice. If you want the most refined versions of the features
available, go with OpenOffice. Both are free, so at least you don't
have to choose based on price."

The interesting thing to remember here is that it is not possible to
"cherry pick" quality.  Quality is not something you get from taking
patches and applying them to LO.  Quality comes from the totality of
what we do.  It is holistic.  It comes from the process as much as the
code.    So although we hear claims that LO can just take whatever
they want from AOO (which they are welcome to do, from my perspective)
they will never achieve the same level of quality unless they work
closely with us.

-Rob
