it was "veery buggy." (the double "e" is from a quote).
I don't know...

Remember one of the things we all like about open source is the vast
of options we get.
Personally I use Libre Office, gnome planner, evolution, firefox,
gimp and
for development I use .net studio on windows and mono on linux. I
love the
choices available

+1, I can't agree more...

For project management I use...
- taskcoach:
- gnome time tracker:
- gnome planner:
- libreoffice calc: home-made spreadsheet

if I wanted gantt charts and other such things, there are
- taskjuggler:
- openproj:

All in all there are quite a few alternatives around, even if you
still use Windows as your operating system.

As Bruce said, none need to be bundled with libreoffice per sa

I have been using OO/LO for several years now in production and I have found it to be no more buggy than the various Windows Office alternatives.

The only time I have come to grief is when trying to share data between users not using OO/LO, otherwise I have been able to make extremely complex spreadsheets and reports that none of my clients are aware were made using LO/OO.

Note, I serve out all my products as PDF documents, or supply my users with files in older formats (e.g. Office 2000 documents).
