Does the "User Data" dialog box come up on a new/clean install for LO
.deb install anymore?

I simulated clean install (get test user and removed his ~/.libreoffice and 
~/ folders) on my Debian testing box. On first run of LibreOffice 
there was no box asking for user information (like name, address, organization 
or anything). I am using LO from Debian repository, so it is possible that 
Debian Developers removed that box on startup, although I find it unlikely.

I don't have access to any Windows machine right now, so I don't know how 
would Windows version behave.

If Ubuntu 11.xx did not have Unity on
it, but something like GNOME 2.x, I would update my system.  I just do
not like to deal with my system with a desktop environment that makes it
look like a tablet.

There is project called MATE, which is actually renamed GNOME 2. I believe it 
is available in Linux Mint repositories. Mint has also Cinnamon, which is fork 
of GNOME 3 changed to provide more traditional (GNOME 2-like) look-and-feel.

Linux Mint itself is based on Ubuntu (but there is also version based on 
Debian testing).

You may want to give them a try, maybe you will like it. Personally I had much 
better experience with Mint than with Ubuntu.
