2015-09-28 17:27:14 +0100 asked a question Why isn't the default download for Windows the x64 installer?

I was doing something that required an office suite. I thought, why not get Libreoffice? I went to the main page and downloaded the installer. When it was finished, I looked more closely. Apparently it was for x86. I spent another 15 minutes downloading the x64 installer. The web site wasted 15 minutes of my life.

I believe that more than 50% of computers are 64-bit nowadays. Why not make the default download (the big green button on the main web page) the x64 installer?

Thanks
