Subject Re: [WWW] What to do with OOo related domains?
Date Sun, 27 May 2012 00:49:43 GMT
Guys, 
I'm not part of the PPMC, but, I do have an opinion on this topic if it matters? :D I think
that the easier it is for the AOO population to reach grandma Freeda in Kansas that doesn't
know the real difference or use the features of the office suites they are currently being
charged for within the sale of most computers. Can be easily misdirected by the "Vendors/Conmen"
who sell the AOO products and don't offer any value add to the customer. 

Abandoning the old domain names would be a major opening for these folks to exploit the populations that
are not skilled enough to understand all the "magic" that is offered for their productivity
and enjoyment from the wonderful and skilled groups like this one.

Suppose we're speaking about 10 domains, I don't think $100 /year is going
to break the ASF's coffers, or does it?.
