"Windows x86_64 (Vista or newer required)" in the OS list on the download page
Open https://www.libreoffice.org/download/download/ and scroll to the list of Operating Systems.
The "(Vista or newer required)" next to Windows x86_64 is now obsolete, as Windows 7 is the required minimum since LO 6.0.

This cannot be changed in the SilverStripe admin interface, but needs to be done directly in the PHP code. I'm not a PHP developer so I'm not sure how it works, but it appears to be defined in mysite/code/DownloadObject.php like so:
// used by Download page type public static $typenames = array ( "win-x86" => "Windows", "win-x86_64" => "Windows x86_64 (Vista or newer required)", "mac-x86" => "Mac OS X (Intel)", "mac-x86_64" => "Mac OS X x86_64 (10.8 or newer required)", "mac-ppc" => "Mac OS X (PPC)", "deb-x86" => "Linux - deb (x86)", "deb-x86_64" => "Linux - deb (x86_64)", "rpm-x86" => "Linux - rpm (x86)", "rpm-x86_64" => "Linux - rpm (x86_64)", "box" => "CD/DVD-images", "src" => "Source code" );
I can change the text there, but LibreOffice 5.4 is still supported and works with Vista I believe, so I don't want to change the text for all releases. And not being a PHP coder, I'm not sure how to make it detect whether it's talking about 5.4 or 6.0...

OK, done – text now says "Windows x86_64 (Windows 7 or newer required)". Closing ticket.
On a separate note, we should change all instances of "Mac OS X" to "macOS", reflecting Apple's rebranding in 2016. But that's a separate matter and I'll check on the website list first, in case there's the possibility it could break something...

- Status changed from New to Closed
Oh, and I've also edited https://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/system-requirements/ now that the 5.x series is not offered.
