Returning to the subject I believe it would be useful to find out what 
is making people stick to older (and in particular discontinued) 
versions. If it is because the new features in new versions are not 
useful to them but the version they use fulfills all their needs, then 
it is fine. But if the cause are regressions then it is something to 
worry about. Just my 2 cents.


All this to say that I'll continue to use LO 4 until it no longer 
performs my work. Then I'll upgrade to the most stable of the "still" 
versions available at that time. Who knows, by then it could be LO 
6.x.5. But, my days of trying a newer version simply because it's 
available are over.

And that is absolutely fine!  In fact for those with similar inclinations,
here is a link to our archived releases:


Of course even from these users we (the LibreOffice project) really need
folks to install the developmental and pre-releases, in parallel of course
[1], both to see emerging features (or regressions) but more importantly to
provide feed back to the design, development and QA process. That is an
aspect of care and feeding a FOSS project that users should not abdicate.
LibreOffice is a great project, please participate.
