This data is crude and unreliable yet may still have some bearing on 
back and forth from the Livecode script editor:

1. My older son runs Windows 7 on his laptop and says that LibreOffice 
is way to buggy to use, and so uses
     Apache Open Office.

2. I run Mac OS 10.6 inside VMware and have had some pretty rough 
moments with LibreOffice there; so
     switched to Apache Open Office.

     My younger son runs Mac OS 10.4 on an old INTEL MacBook and reports 
similar findings.

3. LibreOffice seems better on Linux than Apache Open Office.

SoftMaker Free Office is way lighter on the RAM consumption on Linux, 
and a deal faster than either
LibreOffice or OpenOffice.


One way to make this data slightly less crude and unreliable is for 
other people on this
Use-List to chip in with their experiences.
