"OO.org provides RPM packages, and if they did their jobs correctly it should work fine on any LSB-compliant system. But if you want something that was certified and tested to work on your OS, you should stick to their packages for core components of the system."

You can even get the actual source from the repository and compile the latest version of OpenOffice by yourself - if you have time and space for it. :-)

But I agree, that's only an idea for those who want to do some experiments. For everyday work, the use of the precompiled and tested packages coming from your distribution vendor should be the best solution.
