Hi :) The 6_24 was the first one that seemed to cause slow-downs in
earlier versions of LibreOffice, 3.3.x and 3.4.x branches (prior to
3.4.5).  More recent versions of java seem to have often caused
crashes as well as slowdowns.  The best version seems to have been
the 6_21.  That seemed to be the pinnacle for those early LOs.

LibreOffice 3.5.x and 3.4.5&3.4.6 seem to prefer the newest possible
versions of java, preferring  ultra-latest versions such as 7_3 even
before they get released.

On Gnu&Linux you are considerably safer than if you were running
Windows or even Mac.  Mac started with unix-based security so they
tend to be significantly safer but they are a proprietary system so
presumably they are not able to respond so quickly to threats.  I
think making something proprietary introduces other potential
vulnerabilities anyway even though that is contra-intuitive.


You keep promoting earlier versions of Java, I guess you've not heard
what happened to Apple for not updating their Java versions:
