I need to install LibreOffice on WinXP, but the options for doing so are all unacceptable:
- The “Main Installer” is a torrent, which means I’d be getting portions from anonymous machines, many of which surely practice poor software hygiene or are actively propagating malware.
- The “PortableApps” version is for portable devices; I want my installation stationary, stable, and designed to be configurable for one machine.
- The “AppUp” install requires the use of Intel’s AppUp service, whose privacy policies and forced automatic-updates (according to its terms of service) are not compatible with my software-installation policies.
I found an earlier query (“offline installer for Windows XP?”, 8 May 2012), but it merely pointed to the download page, whose options I’ve already listed.
Isn’t there a basic download capability offered by a trustworthy website without pernicious terms? If not, is there a DVD that can be purchased from LibreOffice or another reliable vendor?
