Not at all. I use xubuntu since several years and it's rather easy to get rid of the remnants
of LibO automatically installed and then install from the deb packages.
The desktop integration works very fine.

I still don't unnderstand what happened there and why he did not support AOO instead. I may
have missed some political argument at the time of the split.
