     * The DVD containing installation files and language packages for the following operating systems:
               Linux RPM, Linux DEB, Mac OS X Mac Intel & PPC and Windows Windows ® 32-bit including
               the above mentioned additions.


At some later time, we may be offering a CD disc set for those with older computers that do not have access to a DVD drive. 

Also, from time to time, we will update this DVD to reflect the current version of LibreOffice installs, and may add other extra software packages, as well as more extensions, templates, and sample files.  


       Soon you will be able to buy a pre-made DVD instead of downloading the DVD ISO file. 
       At that time, we will list the web sites where you will find these pre-made DVDs for sale.
       Please check our web site from time to time for that information, when it becomes available.
