At least one of those is me.

The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), the all-volunteer developers, stewards, and incubators of more than 170 Open Source projects and initiatives, announced today that Apache OpenOffice™ has been downloaded 100 million times.Apache OpenOffice Reaches 100 Million Downloads [blogs.apache.org]

Downloads does not equal user numbers.

I would have though Libre Office is much more popular by now: it has a at least a few tens of millions of users just because it is the default for most recent versions of most Linux distros (and Linux users of any application are usually not counted at all by counting downloads).

I much prefer using OO to that clunky neon thingy for Mac.

But why OO rather than LibreOffice for Mac? The only difference (unless there is something Mac specific I do not know about) is that the LIbreOffice fork is more actively developed these days.
