Would 3.5.4 be considered ready to give to a large local business or
local government office?  Are there any "show stoppers" that are still
there that needs to be fixed before you would give it to your boss in a
business or other non-personal users?

Accessibility issues are probably the biggest hurdle to widespread
adoption in government and administration, the Java framework has been
screwed up at some point and that causes accessibility tools, most
notably screenreaders, to either no longer work, or cause the app to
crash - not a satisfactory state of affairs if your
firm/administration/unit has to provide accessible office tools as part
of its legal requirements.

The issue of instability with Apple's accessibility tools has been
ongoing since the release of LO from version 3.3, and is still not resolved.

I have been reading on the accessibility and developer lists more
recently how NVDA (Windows) has also stopped working.

Until issues like these are fixed, there will be no hope of LO being
taken up administrations/companies/institutions with a requirement to
cater for people with disabilities. It is hoped that IBM's recent
contribution to the Apache OO project of parts of the Lotus Symphony
code, most notably the accessibility framework code, will be able to be
integrated into the LO trunk code and thereby improve the situation, but
for the moment, the developers are still waiting for the dust to settle
around the code release.
