The real big thing is how ready is this line to be used for business 
users.  During the 3.3.x and 3.4.x line crossover, you keep getting told 
that this version is ready and that version is not.

I think you are trying to find some universal criteria of "business-readiness", 
which simply does not exist.

Let's say that LO 3.6.0 has some serious bug in one of Calc's economical 
functions. Does it make it not ready for business users? It depends. If you 
are copywriter, who runs Calc few times in a month just to sum some numbers, 
then you can freely start using 3.6.0. If your job involves stock market, then 
perhaps you will prefer to stay with earlier version and wait for 3.6.x with 
bug fixed to come out.

For academic writers, virtually none of OOo/LO is ready for business user due 
to poor bibliography management implementation (although you can use some 
other bibliographic management software, e.g. Zotero or Mendeley, with 

There is no simple answer for that question. Perhaps most conservative users 
should stick with 3.x.6 releases - as latest in each line, they have lowest 
number of bugs.

If you have time, you can check what bugs are know and what are fixed for each 
release. When there are no bugs known in procedures you are using, then 
perhaps you can mark that version as "ready for business users".
