 I have some doubts as to whether the two products will diverge now that

that at some point rather than let OOo just whither and die it will merge
with The Document Foundation and the two will become essentially one.  If
that happens it might be a good idea to use both names, OOo could end up
being the Windows version and LO the Linux and other OS version.  Or
something like that.

Sorry, but I don't agree, LibreOffice is to stay and I couldn't care less
about OpenOffice name. But that's just my opinion.

It would be silly to completely ignore the fact that OpenOffice is a very
strong and established brand name. All other things being equal, that could
be an important marketing asset - so perhaps better discussed on the
marketing list. To me, what matters is furthering FOSS, we should avoid
counter-productive wars and work collaboratively where ever possible.
