Looks like the core OOo team has split from Oracle, renaming OOo LibreOffice, and the OOo website to

The OOo website makes no mention of Libre Office, but LibreOffice has a faq that leaves as many practical questions unanswered as it answers many of the organizational ones.  For instance, where other parts of the web site claim that LO is a rebranding and built on the OOo code base, the download page describes it as Beta software, and warns about use in a production environment.

Has anyone tried LO?
Are there regressions that make it less stable than OOo?
Will OOo still be developed under Oracle's umbrella?
Do the leading distros have plans to replace OOo with LO?

I've been using one form or another of this suite since StarOffice 5.2, and would appreciate any insights.
