//OpenOffice.org is a core component of many GNU/Linux distributions.

...

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.//

This is true.

It would be a tardy distribution indeed if it didn't have the new version of OpenOffice available from repositories within a few days. Perhpas in "extras" repositories rather than the main one, but still available.

If one's distro doesn't have this, then perhaps one should look at changing to another better-supported distro.
