h2. Software Repositories

The following table lists the major unofficial download sites for OpenOffice:

Note:  inclusion on this list does not imply endorsement or approval by the Apache
OpenOffice project.  This list is merely a list that we are reviewing.

|| Site \\ || URL || Most-recent version hosted \\ || Platform/Languages Hosted \\ || Updated
to Apache Branding? \\ || Description/comments accurate? \\ || Other comments/concerns \\
||
| FileHippo.com \\ | [http://www.filehippo.com/download_openoffice/] | AOO 3.4 \\ | Windows/en-US
\\ | Partial.  Title is correct, but description refers to "OpenOffice.org". \\ |
Some errors: \\
\\
1. License is stated as LGPL \\
\\
2. "Note: As of April 2011, commercial  development of OpenOffice.org project has been terminated.
LibreOffice, a  fork of OpenOffice is now available for download [here|http://www.filehippo.com/download_libreoffice]."
| We should contact them to get these errors corrected. \\ |
| Filehorse \\ | [http://www.filehorse.com/download-openoffice/] | AOO 3.4.0 \\ | Windows/en-US
| Yes \\ | Yes \\ | Good job\! \\ |
| Softpedia \\ | [http://www.softpedia.com/get/Office-tools/Office-suites/OpenOfficeorg-for-Windows.shtml]
| AOO 3.4.0 \\ | Windows/en-US \\
\\
They do not host the binaries.  Instead they point directly to the SourceForge copy.
\\ | Partial.  It is referred to as "Apache OpenOffice.org" \\ | No glaring errors.
\\
\\
Comments are generally positive, though the numerical rating does not seem to correspond with
the comments. \\ | UI is a bit spammy.  I was fooled into clicking download links
that were not really for AOO, but for other things. \\ |
| Heise Software Verzeichnis | [http://www.heise.de/download/openoffice.html] | AOO 3.4.0
| Windows XP, Server 2003, Server 2008, Vista, 7, Linux, Mac OS X/Intel \\  \\
de (full install), en-US (langpack) \\  \\
They host the binaries, incl. virus check. | No branding, no graphics/logos.  Title
and description is talking about "OpenOffice". | Product description refers to versions "3.0"
and "3.20". Totally outdated. \\  \\ | Only 1 comment from 2012 and this is the usual rant
about AOO vs. LO. \\  \\
No links pointing back to AOO project or Apache at all. |
| CNET | [http://download.cnet.com/OpenOffice-org/3000-18483_4-10263109.html] | AOO 3.4.0
| Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista \\  \\
en-US | Not at all. No branding/graphics/logos. Title and Description refers to "OpenOffice.org".
| | [They still offer OOo 3.4.0 Beta|http://download.cnet.com/OpenOffice-org/3000-18483_4-10209910.html]
|
| 01net.com (French language site) \\ | [http://www.01net.com/telecharger/windows/Bureautique/editeur_de_texte/fiches/31555.html]
| AOO 3.4.0 \\ | Windows/fr \\
\\
They don't host directly but redirect to SourceForge \\ | No Apache branding. \\ | Except
for the branding issue, the description is accurate. \\ | We're their #2 download, behind
Adobe Acrobat Reader. \\ |
| Ninite | http://ninite.com/ | | | | | |
| Softonic | http://openoffice.softonic.it/ | AOO 3.4.0 | Windows (it) | Partially updated
but with imprecise information (e.g., "OpenOffice" being the old name and "Apache OpenOffice.org"
the new one) | Acceptable but not fully updated | They offer very prominently their downloader/installer
(which I didn't try) and, less visibly, the SF link. |
