From memory all these features are also available in OpenOffice 3.3. Obviously as a fork that has just happened there is little difference between the packages except the perceived 'freeness' and future direction.

That said, I recollect that LibreOffice was talking about merging some Redhat Code with the OO base before release but unsure if this actually ever happened.

it would be good if someone was able to put together a package comparison matrix showing how OpenOffice and LibreOffice differs. Then as the branches diverge the value of using LibreOffice will become obvious.
