Subject Re: Where is the OpenOffice logo used?
Date Tue, 21 Feb 2012 16:37:43 GMT

I am thinking also about general promotion of open office.
I also think it would be a great idea to encourage companies who make 
proprietary software to include OpenOffice in their distributions. But I 
do not think that companies who make proprietary OS will include OOo in 
their distributions. In most cases they have their own office software 
that they need to promote.

We can also negotiate with different companies who produces all kinds of 
software except OS to include in their distributions open office as a 
bonus to a customer. In my opinion it can improve the popularity of a 
product. E.g. somebody buys an antivirus and gets a bonus office packet 
with the same DVD.

What is your opinion?
