    Libreoffice is literally Openoffice with more features. They take the Openoffice source code, add features, and release it as Libreoffice.

    No reason to install Openoffice.
    I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.
