HI :)
Ahhh, it would be great if Windows had an official package manager that could look after all the 
apps, not just the MS ones and could make sure everything on the system got updated instead of just 
patches for Window's own security flaws.  Something that could help people pick and choose the 
packages that got installed for a program so that you could tell it what to install and then walk 
away with no need to hand-hold it answering questions all the way through and with each program 
having it's own different 'style'.  Hmm, but then it would look a lot less like Windows and might 
even be a little safer which would be a nightmare for all those antivirus companies.
Regards from
Tom :)

for all would be better if it were a language and a dictionary in the

This was discussed before back in November 2010 (when LibreOffice started
distributing the first betas)

At the time it was argued that due to the reduced number of mirrors and disk
space allocated for this project, it would be better initially to have a
single installer instead of a localized installer for each language
supported. This means that for each version you had a 200Mb installer
instead over 100 (example) localized 150Mb installers which would take 15

The main problem is that removing all the extra languages only saves you
some 50Mb. Is this worth the trouble?

It would be nice to have [Windows] LO install not install ALL of the dictionaries possible as the 
default.  If you are asked to choose the languages, by default, you want to install - that would 
make me happy.

Of you could do like Linux does, have the default install and then download the other language 
packs you need beyond the initial install file.  Would that make it smaller, or at least it would 
make all the platforms use "similar" installs - main English install, plus an additional install 
for each language and help packs.  Right now, if you have one platform install all of the possible 
language packs included in the default package, then all platforms should do the same.

I use Linux by default, but I use Windows as well for some systems.  It would be nice if LO was 
more consistent on what is needed to be download and installed between the platforms.  You will 
need to download the same number of files and then install them via that platform's install method. 
 The KEY is you download the same number of file no matter which platform you use.
