Re: [steering-discuss] Call for SC-vote: Using (Windows) Screnshots in TDF materials


Hi :)
+1 to all this.  

The agreed wording, that keeps getting repeated, allows  screen-shots to be 
taken in MS Windows.  The wording also cleverly allows screen-shots on other 
platforms.  


The perceived issue with MS is that MS Office is possibly their main income 
stream.  People might buy 2 or 3 versions of MSO to upgrade that while only 
upgrading their OS once.  If MS see TDF as a threat to that income stream then 
we can expect them to try to reduce that threat.  Hopefully they might do that 
as fantastically well as they manage to build stable, secure products but we 
can't rely on that.  


Oracle fell 'easily' because it wasn't a fight they were particularly interested 
in but with MS its a crucial part of their business, especially if we get onto 
the Cloud or when people realise the Cloud is "a pipe-dream" and deeply flawed.

Regards from
Tom :)

Hi
my vote is to use MS Windows screenshots, for windows-only situations (as in
the install)
Thanks and regards

Hi,

in our latest SC-Call we discussed the issue about taking and publishing
Screenshots on windows. As we had no quorum in the call, I'd ask every SC
member / deputy to vote on the statement we agreed in the call.

The statement is:

It is noted that several members of the SC acknowledge the existence of a
legal risk to display screenshots of LibreOffice on Windows, but the risk is
deemed low, therefore, while screenshots on GNU/Linux should be the default
ones, screenshots on Windows are also possible.
