Subject Re: [INFO] Unofficial presentation of the AOO and Educoo projects

Hi all,

I knew this first journey into the world of MS users would be difficult,
particularly in my area, but I wouldn't expect a so bad result. The
presentation is canceled for a lack of participants. I was informed of the
situation very late, a few days before the deadline for registration. I
tried myself to recruit people in emergency, but in four days, it  was too
short to inverse the tendance.
Note that this situation is not representative and has not to be
I will now try another method, without going through "official channels"
but contact directly users myself and organize private and free information
meetups to attempt to create a small users basis, because I've observed
that most MS users are not against OpenOffice in itself, but seem to be
more afraid about questions as changes, lack of support, to be isolated,
etc. So, in my area, it seems there is a need to have first an intermediate
layer of "experienced" users, perhaps organized in an association, between
the project and a potential basis of users.
So, I will try this way.
