The discussion of why companies should or can't migrate away from MS Office
or proprietary document formats is a bit off-topic. I'm also assuming most
of us have had this discussion at length before as well. I'm assuming if
you're on this list that you are in favor of open software and open
standards and have been frustrated at why others aren't as apt to adopt

More on topic however, I think if we can focus efforts on improving LibO to
be the best product, then more people would be willing to switch to it.

Here is a query that will show 198 open issues/bugs/feature requests that
have at least 25 votes:

I believe some of these are addressed in the go-oo patches, and thusly LibO
today. Looking at that list, which popular existing issues/bugs/feature
requests that people have voted for repeatedly do you think that LibO should
focus on?

Does LibO have its own wiki or bug tracker? I'm not a developer, but I could
compose a list in a wiki, or open matching bugs in a LibO bug tracker. I
imagine that tackling some popular but unresolved issues, and some of the
easy hacks (low hanging fruit) mentioned earlier in this thread might serve
two purposes.

It could attract new developers and also create some clear visible
advantages to the LibO codebase over the OOo codebase.

Quoting Ernst W. Winter:

Yes sounds good. How did the city of Munich change 14,000 PC to OOo?

Since I'm in Spain and not in Munich, I have no idea.

I do think where there is a willing there will be a way. If Govermnet
Authorities can change, why can't a corporation change.

Public authorities don't have to make a profit. Corporations do. The
changes we are discussing here cost money.

Is it what
people decide or the company?

The company, of course.

besides I don't believe that all employees are stupid or lazy when it
comes to learningt something new.

Nobody is saying they are. But re-training still takes time.
