Thanks. Still a lot of v3.5.x versions to release left.

Basically LibreOffice tends to have 2 branches being developed 
alongside each other.  The later releases of a branch become more 
stable and add fewer new features.  Each branch seems to become stable 
by about .4, so 3.5.4 will hopefully be stable but by then there will 
probably be a new branch, the 3.6.x packed full of new features.  So 
it's always a question of whether you want to have greater stability 
or more functionality, or have both installed alongside each other.

Ah, I will try v3.4 later. I tend to get the latest stable versions. Are 
there any bug reports about the Windows XP issues like my startup 

I run a 32bit OS and programs even tho i have a 64bit processor.  The 
first few times i tried 64bit OSes i found only small speed increases 
but loads of additional problems and instabilities.  I'm really only a 
point&click user so i went back to 32bit to make things easier.  That 
was a good few years ago so i guess i really should try a 64bit OS 
soon!  I thought LibreOffice only released 32bit versions? (which 
should be fine on a 64bit OS) Regards from

I didn't even notice it was a 32-bit LO. I also don't even see a 64-bit 
one, but if it is worse than 32-bit then I don't want it. BTW, 32-bit 
v3.5.2 LO on my 64-bit W7 HPE worked fine so far. :)

Now, I just need to get it working on my old Windows XP Pro. SP3
