By that you basically state that no matter what, OpenOffice will always be
OpenOffice whenever is or Apache OpenOffice. So I guess ur
point on "Everybody I talk to" is irrelevant.

I have never heard people saying Novell OpenOffice or Lindows OpenOffice or
Oracle Open Office. But that doesnt mean they dont exist. Most users from
Ubuntu kept saying OpenOffice even thought they were using Novell Edition
for the past 3 years.
