I would like to know which of the older versions of LO has the best
ability to import really old word processor formats.
I remember that LO was reducing the number of import filters for
those old file formats, but I may need one of them.
I have been asked to copy files off a floppy drive and convert the
files to be able to work with the current tech. Right now, I have to
find a working floppy drive to access the disc. Right now, the only
system with a floppy drive has a non-working drive, I have to replace
it. My main system does not even have a cable port for a floppy
drive, and it seems all of the others I have opened up are the same.
So, as soon as I get a working floppy drive working, I will need to
get support for 1990's to early 2000's era word processing formats.
The way she remembers, she did not use Word, but may have used Works
or some other older package that are before MSO .doc format became
the "standard" format before FOSS office packages came out.
Any idea which older version of LO would be the best to try? As I
have stated, as soon as I get a working floppy drive installed, then
I will know which legacy format I need to work with. It would be
nice to know which version of LO to install for the conversion to the
- MSO's and ODF.
I could actually point you to the latest version of LibreOffice (the
4.2.5) as the project keeps on creating new filters for these old
As for recommending anything older than the currently supported
versions (4.1.6 and 4.2.5), it is just unwise to do this and we do not
do it anyway: there are some major security holes left unpatched, and
anyway the "old" versions are no longer supported.
