Hi :)  
Thanks for that link Stuart!  I didn't realise older versions were still
available.  :)

The official pages try to reduce the chance of confusion by removing
choices.  Even so people do get very confused very easily.  Confusion is
always going to be a problem for gateway projects that may well be the
first, or one of the first, OpenSource projects that people use.  

When given choices that suit different circumstances people tend to ask "but
which is best" then whatever answer is given they grumble that it's all too
confusing.  A rough equivalent would be going to a shop to buy a dress and
finding 2 identical except one is green and one is red and then grumbling
because the shop assistant is unable to tell you which is best.  LibreOffice
has to try to avoid confusing 'customers' like that.  

Regards from 
Tom :)
