Hi :)
Exactly!  Actually it doesn't really matter which you choose.

Either way new users are bound to be unhappy at first and some of those are
going to want the other version from whichever you gave them to begin

Are you going to be able to be able to give them a reasonable reason why
the new version you give is an improvement over whichever you gave them to
start with?  Is that reason likely to encourage them in a direction you'd
like them to go in?

What Charles is saying you should do is likely to be more helpful to
LibreOffice than to you or your neighbours.  If/when your neighbours run
into bugs and report them to you then you report them to our bug-tracker.
Your neighbours keep having to deal with the problem until someone comes up
with a work-around or patch.  If it's a patch it would be handy to get your
neighbour to test the patch for us.

Paul and pretty much everyone else is saying to put your neighbours first.
To give them a version less likely to have problems.

[Shrugs] it doesn't really matter to us.

I feel we have caused you too much stress.  Just flip a coin and let that
show you what you have already decided.
* If it falls a way that makes you feel uncomfortable then go the other
* If you flip it and feel happy with the result then go with it.
* If you flip it and don't really care then either go for "best of 3" or
just do what the coin happened to land on.

Note that this is NOT gambling and it is important to NOT follow the way
the coin landed IF that way makes you feel uncomfortable.  It is only a
decision-making tool to help you discover which way you have already
decided but then cleverly hidden from yourself.

Regards from
Tom :)

I'm so confused by the multiple version that I have to ask.

Several neighbors are "eligible" for me to install LibreOffice.

One has Windows XP.
One has Windows 7 and o9ne has Windows 8.
One has Ubuntu and one has Linux Mint.
Another has Red Hat and another has a Mac.

What version shall I use for each?

There are 2 questions really. There are the binaries for Windows, the
binaries for mac the ones for red hat (rpm) & the ones for mint (deb).
Point their browsers to the LibreOffice download page and it should
guess the proper binaries immediately. On linux there is no need to
download from our website . It will be directly in their app store or
software repository.

As for which version: they are your neighbours?  They do not stream
financial data in real time in and out of their office suite? They
don't do the accounting nor the legal documents management of a fortune
500 company?

What do those question s have to do with choosing a version of LO????

Everything actually. My point is this: if your neighbours will be using
their office suite doing what 80% of users do then they might as well
choose Fresh. If they are running businesses they might want to go for the
Still branch.

But why?
