IMHO we should remove the *registration* completely. We are not after
marketing addresses and I don't see a benefit in LibO requiring (or even
inviting) users to register.


From a marketing point of view, not knowing how or from where people are using LibO is working in the dark. LibO is such an essential piece of software, we need to know at the very least where it is being used. ...

I am happy to see it gone. I know it is nice to know who uses the software, but statistics collected that way are skewed because large corporations do a silent install and many people (most?) click on "don't register". And amongst people who download LibreOffice, we do not know who really uses it and who downloaded it to give it a 2-minute trial. In other words, statistics are useless.

On the other hand, the help menu could be improved to add links to one or more of the following:
– help forums
– User guides (essentially the page that has the current LibO user guides)
– Open Document Foundation page.
– Maybe a "feedback" page?
