Phishing with Free Software

Last day I received this email, fortunately the spam engine detected it, but is different the content, other times I had receive similar emails for proprietary software, specially MS Office Suite, which is so expensive and many people want a cheap (an illegal) version. But this time the reference is a Free Software office suite, OpenOffice which in few days will release the new version 3.0.
