As this is my first post here I'd like to introduce myself as someone who is not a coder, but one 
who sees a lot of exciting potential in this LibreOffice project.  I hope this application suite 
can globally serve users across many platforms, interfaces and requirements.  I use OpenSUSE and 
Win7, and have used OOo the last four years, and used StarOffice 10 years ago.
Initially I would like to highly suggest some polishes on the win32 installer for the 3.4 project:

When the first step to installing LibreOffice is the prompt to ask where to extract the install 
folder immediate confusion comes to many elementary PC users.  I think this is primarily because 
this step is unusual, most Windows-based apps do not contain this step, or hide it from the user.  
I suggest eliminating this step.  Either the installer file is packaged differently to accomplish 
this, or it automatically extracts the MSI, etc. into a "temp" folder in the background, which is 
afterwards deleted upon a successful installation.

The second issue is that the install folder "C:\Program Files\LibreOffice 3" contains the version 
number.  This is much better than the Start Menu\Programs folder "LibreOffice 3.3" which contains 
the point version also.  I suggest removing both.  Simply "LibreOffice" is enough, and is a much 
more common standard and expectation for Windows users.

Thank you for your consideration of this!
