I to choose, currently, to install LibreOffice from the web site's
install files instead of doing it through a PPD[?] or through a
not-released-yet repository.  It is safer that way.  Then there is
the fact the distros sometimes change the packages to make them
"their own versions", so it may be better to use the LibreOffice web
site version.
If you find anything odd with "our own versions" in Debian or Ubuntu,
Rene Engelhard (for Debian) and I (for Ubuntu) would be very interested
to hear about that.

Best Regards,

I was not talking about the versions on the LibreOffice web site.

It works great for my Ubuntu desktop. I have the Windows version on my laptop. I see no differences in running either of them, though my laptop is very slow due to all of the security software I need to include with a Windows machine.

The "odd" part was referring to the fact that Ubuntu did not use the standard OOo version in their repository, and even modified it somewhat to fit their "needs" that made it "their" version. I had to uninstall Ubuntu's OOo version to get the "better" and more "up-to-date" one from the OOo site. Also the problem is the lag time Ubuntu has from the web site's release of the update to the repository's version.
