On Linux platforms like Ubuntu, Fedora Core, etc, I'd like all updates
via my package manager. After all, it's one of the notable advances
that's turned a Linux box from a geek toy to a viable tool for
non-expert users that is arguably easier to own than a Windows system.
On Windows, I'd want to get updates from a central TDF site, although
I had a satisfactory experience in the past with the Google Pack.

On Linux, via my package manager.
On Windows, I've usually just downloaded the current version and
installed - over the top of an existing installation, if there was
one. But I have also used the Google Pack in the past, and it worked
well for me.

I'd like updates to cover the core software plus all add-ons, clip art
libraries, auxiliary components, etc.

That can be useful with a conservative Linux distrib that is tardy in
pushing new software versions (e.g. Debian), or for other special
cases, but generally your Linux's package manager would be the best
way to go, no?

The advantage would be that you might possibly get some things earlier
than via your preferred Linux distrib, but it sounds like a big and
possibly unjustifiable demand on LibO project resources for the
Plus I noticed that Ubuntu distributes an OOo (LibO in future, I
guess) that is slightly better integrated visually into Gnome than the
current LibO beta I installed... an added value from additional work
they do before shipping a distrib update/upgrade?
