The actual computer magazine c't compared
OpenOffice and LibreOffice and come to the
result that the new versions of LibreOffice (4.1.x) had
more features than OpenOffice.
(but often unneeded like the work counting ... never understodd who needs 
such features I never was asked how many words a my document contains)

But the conclusion was:
*LibreOffice is VERY BUGGY*

I can confirm this:

I Installed LibreOffice on the Windows 7 64 bit PC
of a friend, which he use since Version 3.6.

Last Month I did an upgrade to libreoffice 4.1 on his

Now he had big troubles: From time to time he got the error
"Program does not respond"

I installed now the portable Libreoffice Versions 4.0.x and 4.1.x
and asked him to try out the both ... always the same problems.

He could not work with these versions.

Now I downgraded to libreoffice 3.6 and all works fine.

On my Kubuntu 64 bit Linux I had no problems with LibreOffice,
so its perhaps the Windows version which is actually more buggy.


Nobody gives pressure on you, at least not me: I am a great fan of 
LibreOffice and switched from OpenOffice to LibreOffice a long time ago.

But ... I will not recommend it to my friends in the next time, sorry.

As appraised to you all I am an ordinary computer user limited to word,
excel & ppt. But an ardent fan & supporter of LIBRE OFFICE.

Was till now using LO 3.?.? not sur eof the succeeding digits. Recently
downloaded 4.1.3 but am facing lot of problems with it:

Hangs for no good reason - almost at par with MS Office with VISTA

got a pdf file converted to word online & the resultant was .rtf LO 4
would open it in .odt allow me to save it in .odt but when I try to open
the LO file I receive an error msg box:

Libre Office                X

Red                    Read-Error.
Circle                 Error reading file.


Have tried it several times but to the same result.

I feel LO needs some time before novices like can use it.

What would happen if I download LO 3.5.7 (already started it from Source
Forge. Will there be a clash between the 2 versions? Will LO
allow me to install the older version LO 3.5.7?

I do not want to first uninstal LO & then install LO 3.5.7 is
this possible? or will there be a down time i.e. uninstall LO
then download LO 3.5.7 & then install it?

Kindly suggest

thanks & regards
