Disabling S mode should be strongly discouraged IMO.

if users need to do so to run some software then that is a failure of the
vendor of that software to adequately care for the users security, IMO.

Most if not all users I have advised have disabled the S Mode. Most of
them are students whose apps they need are not on the Microsoft Store.

Not all companies can afford providing a specific version for stores.
This especially applies for technologies blacklisted from stores (e.g.
Java, electron, etc. for the Mac App Store) and apps with anti-piracy

Hopefully, TDF and TDC will fix this situation in the very near future.
Widening the different channels we have to install LibreOffice is a good
way to ensure omnipresence and ease of migrations. :) And the potential
removal of the "Vanilla" mention for future TDC versions is a good way
to improve LibreOffice brand awareness.
