What's the difference between Libre Office and Open Office. Ubuntu 12.04 is shipped with Libre Office and before that all versions 10, 9, 8 were shipped with Open Office. If Libre Office is better than in which situations and circumstances? Why Ubuntu has decided to switch from Open Office to Libre?
