Hi Tim, all

In my opinion TDF got a bad deal with the PortableApps people...

They only create the versions they feel like and they drop a branch the
minute a new release is out from a newer branch. Even worse: they don't
listen to requests (maybe they don't have the manpower but they aren't
interested in voluntaries either...).

The guys at WinPenPack create a new portable versions at the same pace as
the regular LO. And they missed version 3.6.6 but listened to my request on
their Forum.

For someone working on QA it is essential to have the final version on each
branch. WinPenPack has all of them.

Another advantage is that you can run all versions simultaneously (if you
wish). The PortableApps version can not be executed while the installed
version is running (I can't remember if it even runs when another portable
version is running).

Finally the WinPenPack binaries seem to be somewhat optimized because they
run faster on slow computers (like my netbook).

Conclusion: I highly recommend X-LibreOffice ;)

BTW X-LibreOffice version 4.0.4 is available since June 19th...

Just my 2 cents ;)
