There seems to be differenting opinions on how business ready 3.5.3 was
So now that LO 3.5.4 is out,
I ask the users, is it ready to be deployed to my/our business users?
We really need to know.
The last "official" word on the 3.5.x line was that business users would
research the package before downloading and installing it.
Well, I do not know how they will to all that research, or where they
will get the documentation for it, before downloading it.
So I am asking LO users the question.
Is 3.5.4 ready for our business and/or enterprise users?
The doc people are work hard to get more 3.5.x line documentation out,
but to be honest about it people can still use 3.3.x and 3.4.x docs till
3.5.x comes out.
I would have to say...... absolutely not. :-(
The easiest way to answer your basic question, IMO, is to ask
yourself... "Can I make a profit selling this product?" If the answer
is "No", you're not ready.
To do that, you need to be able to beat MS at it's own game.
You not only have to be able to meet the competition, but exceed the
competition. IMO, too many basics don't do this.
LO has to work and be satisfactory to *every* potential business and
government user. I don't think any business or government agency is
going to test the software for a week, and conclude all is well. They
may not be happy later when something they expected to work doesn't
work, yet MSO or another product had no issues with it.
I'm willing to bet, that within every government all features of MSO
will be used. Only some features will be used by any individual or
division, but every MSO feature will be used by somebody somewhere.
On March 5, 2010, I filed this bug on 3.5.0:
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=46986 One poster has
reported it as being reproducible.
Yet it is still unconfirmed, and not fixed in 22.214.171.124. It may not be
important to the devs of LO, but it's sure important to me. And if this
doesn't work for me, why would I recommend LO to someone?
I had three or four other issues with 3.5.0, but if no one even bothers
to confirm this issue, why should I bother reporting any other?
Occasionally, I will rehab/save/refurbish, whatever word you prefer, an
older computer system to be given away, and I used to install LO. I no
longer do that, because of the issues I've found. I've started to
include a less powerful free office product, Kingsoft Office. They do
not offer a Mac version, so I've not been able to test it for even the
issues I've found in LO.
