Dear you LibO folks,
Some days ago as a branch of the thread "Base and Java 1.7 - does not work" I asked for your advice/recommendation on what versions of LibreO and JRE I shall /_install today_/ when I quite far from home and my laptop as the only computer, at my countryside cottage want to work with Writer, Calc and especially Base without any disturbing bugs and other issues.

I think my question is relevant and of interest to others too.
All along this winter and springtime this mailing list has handled problems about LibO v.3.5.x not working, LibO-3.5.x crashing, Base not working, with or without Java JRE, connections to db not working, etc. After about 5 months struggling with LibO (-Base) I am sort of fed up -- as a preparation before summer I finally need to decide if continue with LibO, or return to OpenO or skip both of those and look for something else as a reliable working tool, e.g. purchase MSOffice&MSAccess.

I've got some kind varying explanations but no exact answers plus that I know that it is not quite true that a 32-bit program (e.g. WinXP progs) runs always OK on a Win7/64-bit. You LibO experts may know about LibO's compatibility features and build-ups and it's more or less hidden wonderful properties (e.g. /_telling now_/ that it is 32-bit and runs on Win7-64bit) but try to remember that out here are many 'dummies' like me that do not - not until we are told.

So I repeat my questions:
What version of LibreO do you recommend that I shall install on my laptop (Win7-Premium Home-64bit) before summer a >> what is the best, most reliable and stable version today (esp. concerning Base, no bugs, no other issues) b >> does that LibO-version require a Java JRE to run Base? -- what JRE-version (surely OK on Win7/64bit)? c >> what kind of issues do I have to be prepared for with LibO in general, and because of LibO being 32-bits and my laptop Win7/64-bits? d >> does that recommended LibO (on laptop) communicate without problems with my PC (Win-Prof/32 bit & LibO-3.4.6)?
Best regards
Pertti Rönnberg
