I didn't mean that OpenOffice was mainly used on Linux, I meant that OpenOffice was mainly used on desktops as opposed to, for example, servers.
Sorry for the ambiguity.
I re-read your statement: I should be the one to apologise.
Though I don't use it myself, according to all stats I've seen Ubuntu is by far the most used Linux on the desktop (which is where Open/LibreOffice is used)
The closest noun construct to the phrase
"which is where Open/LibreOffice is used"
in your sentence is
"on the desktop"
. Not "Linux". Your text is clear, I just misread it.
I think the parentheses threw me a bit. Sorry about that.
