interesting topic. Of course, I've also tried a Google search with 
"openoffice download" and got:

- Not a single link to any webpages for a 3.4.1 download (I've only 
looksed at the first 5 result pages).

So, there must be something special in the kind of seaching that the 
user is doing.

However, it doesn't matter. There is no reason to provide download pages 
to offer outdated versions - based on w.oo.o. Of course we cannot 
influence what others are offering on their webpages.

I've deleted the webpage that is mentioned in the result page the user 
has posted in the screenshot. As soon as Google is re-indexing our 
website I expect that this special webpage is recognized as deleted and 
therefore no longer in the search results.
