no you are wrong, I believe marketing is very important but I have
stopped dreaming. We had already several discussion and the outcome was
let's say limited... I would be happy if somebody pushed forward with
good ideas and a consistent and good strategy. I no expert, I am
interested in marketing and have ideas but no time...

LO is probably 70-80% marketing and that is something they do quite
well. Well I am not sure if I personally would support their aggressive
approach, especially because I think that competition against us is
stupid and completely off topic but that is something else. They are at
least visible, make noise and are well know in the Linux world.

And we have > 50 million downloads in 1 year with a good product.

But again convince me that there are people who are interested and have
the skills to do good markting for AOO as well.
