No, you've obviously have never used linux.  This has nothing to do with a stable or unstable
internet connection.  It has everything to do with tar gz and deb files which are a pain
in the #$%#$.  It has everything to do with that fact that Apache Open Office is user unfriendly
for linux users.  

WPS Kingsoft for instance is really easy to install - a simpleton like myself has no problem
installing their stuff, including their patches.  And I didn't have to uninstall libre first
or any thing like that.  Maybe look into seeing how they do it so easily.

I like, but I'm not in love with their software which is why i keep coming back to Apache. 
But until you all figure something out, I'll keep on using WPS and Freeware, which I like
Thank you for the quick reply though.  I really didn't expect to get one.Michael Maloney

CDs/DVDs are not available from Apache. But I also don't know what the 
problem should be to download it - except that fast/stable Internet 
access is not available everywhere on the world.

Furthermore please make sure do use always the original sources for 
downloading software. For Apache OpenOffice it is this [1].

A simple solution would be to download the needed installation files by 
someone, burn it on the CD and give it to them they need it.
