There is a movement to close the OpenOffice project due to poor support and few updates from Oracle, the project's sponsor. Preferable is the LibreOffice project, which branched off OpenOffice many years ago and provides the most successful and progressive alternative.

LibreOffice user here; Any compelling reasons to use OpenOffice over LibreOffice in 2020? It seems to me that LibreOffice is very actively developed and way ahead of OpenOffice, including for security issues.

Still better than Microsoft Office. Quark still loves it as do most apps that allow for docx imports,

DANGER! There is a severe security hole, CVE-2018-16858, in ALL versions of OpenOffice through version 4.1.6. Until Apache fix the problem, it is advised to AVOID using OpenOffice. Try one of the alternatives. LibreOffice has been patched in its latest versions, 6.0.7/6.1.3 and up. There is a workaround for the security hole for advanced users. It is posted in the article I've linked below. To quote: "As a workaround until OpenOffice releases a security fix, users can remove or rename the pythonscript.py file in the installation folder to disable the support for python."

Better than MS Office! Saves docx files better than Word. Does not create hundreds of styke sheets in the background like Word does! Imports into QuarkXpress are much cleaner with far less loss of formatting. Does allow you to chose youer own default fonts without demanding that you use Calibri or whatever Microsoft demands of you!
