hello. linux support i think did not change in libreoffice newer versions. but libreoffice 5.4 on windows have some issues and bugs on windows xp as i studied bug reports and other websites. not sure about 5.4.4 that works on xp or not, but 5.4.3 works properly. by the way, i have windows xp and did test in 5.4 branch only 5.4.0 and in 5.3 branch, tested till the 5.3.6 and did not download 5.3.7 but i am sure that it be supported well on xp. even if your xp is 64 bit, you should use 32bit version of libreoffice. because libreoffice since 5.0, supports both x86 and x64, but x64 version, just work on windows vista and later! hope that my explanations helps you and God bless all!
