What do you mean by "more features" and "better optimized"? I thought
that the PortableApps.com version that LO's web site links to does not
remove any features so the "more features" statement needs to be
No features are removed on any of the Portable packs.
winPenPack allows to choose on first run the language that you want to use
as default for the interface and any other language (or languages) as
alternative for the GUI as well as for dictionaries.
PortableApps only allows to choose between English only OR English (US and
GB), Arabic, Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), French, German, Italian,
Japanese, Korean, Portuguese (Brazilian and Portugal), Russian, and Spanish
There is no option for e.g. Portuguese only.
On a slow computer when running LO from a pen drive (connected to a USB 2.0
port...) X-LibreOffice loads faster and seems to respond faster (maybe
because it has less language modules?) than Portable LibreOffice
Another reason why I prefer winPenPack is that new releases of X-LibreOffice
are usually available soon after the official release by TDF (e.g. LO 4.1.4
was announced yesterday and X-LibreOffice 4.1.4 is already available today)
This allows me to install a new version (e.g. LO 126.96.36.199 which is a Release
Candidate so it overwrites my install) and still have the previous version
as a portable ready to test for regressions.
If the "winPenPack" is so much better than the other one, then why is it
not listed in the "Portable" page of LO's site?
Maybe because X-LibreOffice is only sanctioned by the Italian LibreOffice
but not by the German/Global TDF...
You should ask that to TDF.
