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".

Right now, the web site makes you do a lot of clicking on new links to get to a different version of LO than the one that automatically given to you, which is the most cutting edge. In a few months when 3.6.0 comes out, I bet we will get that one as the "recommended" version over the 3.5.5 version.

Yes, each personal and business user will have to make their own choices on which version to use. What we must do is make it easier to choose and give them an easy way to make that choice. The feature page for the 3.4.x line does not have a bug report link, while 3.5.x does.

Can there ever be a list of features and a side by side "check-mark" stating if 3.4.6 and/or 3.5.x can do that listed feature/option? That would help the business user, and others, choose which version to try/use.

I do not have the Print to Tray "x" issue, since my non-default trays are all manual feeding trays [except my new printer that can have 10+ sheets in the manual feeding tray]. There are other issues that look bad for some of my business users, that I have given DVDs to, but I do not know enough of all the features they would use LO for to decide for myself if the current like is ready for them. Most of my users would not know that you never use a x.x.0 version for their use in business and personal work that cannot have downtime for "new line" bugs.
