Date Tue, 01 Jan 2013 03:36:25 GMT
Dear Andrea, 

Greetings from Tata Motors ! 

Thank you for your mail and yes definetly i will keep you posted about the outcome. 
Is it ok to  pass on your mail Id to our IT department to further take this forward. 

I suggest use of Adobe Captivate to make multimedia tutorials for all Open Office tools, 
this will give a boost to the users to try these tools for their productivity requirements.

Please visit: for sample high quality multimedia tutorials of SW tools. 

Have a pleasant day ahead 
Anand Vasappanavara

	This is a legitimate and natural question, but, due to the large number of subscribers to
our mailing lists (some of whom have strong feelings on the matter) and due to the OpenOffice
project policy (all project-relevant discussions are held in public, so everybody can have
a say), it can derail a good discussion like this one into a chaos of factoids and personal
	So, considering that we are on an OpenOffice mailing list, I'll just state things that you
probably already know, i.e., that OpenOffice decided to have relatively infrequent (i.e.,
one in 3-6 months or so) releases, focusing on careful testing and quality (for example, the
OpenOffice source code contains translations in 100+ languages but the project decided to
release only those languages that are fully translated; and new translation volunteers are
showing up on a nearly daily basis). I've already described the license in my previous message.
And a good thing of free and open source software is that you can always try and make your
own opinion!

	I really wish you the best. It would be nice if you kept us informed if you decide to try
OpenOffice. And, if you need any help or want to suggest possible improvements, you are welcome
to contact the "dev" mailing list (the right one for generic questions; no need to add other
mailing lists) again.
