In preparing for the release of NeoOffice Mobile in our upcoming NeoOffice 3.0.1 release, we have been scouring our webservers and removing any unnecessary files that we can. Since NeoOffice Mobile caches your uploaded files on our servers, we want to make sure that as much of our finite webserver disk space is available as possbile.
During this process, I found that RetroOffice 2.2.5's main installers, language packs, and patch installers were taking up over 1 GB of our webserver disk. Since there have been only about a dozen downloads of RetroOffice 2.2.5 since its release 6 months ago, it is pretty clear that at most a handful of people are using RetroOffice and it is very possible to no one is using it on a daily basis.
Since webserver disk space is very costly to add (data centers consider space usage to be a very valuable resource), I will be removing the RetroOffice 2.2.5 binaries from our servers before the NeoOffice 3.0.1 Early Access Program starts of 15 September 2009.
