A historical note: both LibreOffice and OpenOffice have their roots in the old Sun Microsystems StarOffice. For my older clients that upgraded their computers I preferred LibreOffice as it still opens their Works files, usually recipes they had created. Last I looked at OpenOffice showed some formats are no longer supported.
A historical note: StarOffice originated in 1985 as StarWriter by Star Division a German company. It was acquired by Sun Microsystems in 1999. Sun Microsystems, in turn, was acquired by Oracle Corporation in 2010.

BTW, I actually used StarWriter with Linux around 1997. It was a commercial program but the Linux version was free. The 60MB install file took 6 hours to download from Star Division's web site. Note that was about 3000 bytes per second typical for a 56K modem.
