Ubuntu and lots of other distros (Debian, Mandriva, Gentoo, etc.) have been shipping the Go-oo fork of OpenOffice for a long time. It was still installed under the name OpenOffice though.
Go-oo is a fork, that was created because of Sun's politics regarding patch contributions. NeoOffice for the Mac is based on Go-oo too.
After LibreOffice was created, Go-oo was one of the first to join.

So the only thing that Ubuntu changed is the name.
