Early this year FlashCounter published a statistic showed popularity OOo in
selected countries. We found out that it had 22% in Poland and Czech
Republic and 21% in Germany.

The study relies on extricating fonts installed on the system and identify
the installed Office suites. For OOo it's OpenSymbol and for MSO it's
Calibri. I think LibreOffice should have own unique font (not RedHat
Liberation Fonts). It can be ugly and useless but should "be" to next
compare in future.

That's a very clever idea but how was it implemented? How do you (or FlashCounter) decide what fonts are installed on my system? What approval did I give for that to be done? If I approved it, why didn't I instead simply say what office suite(s) I had installed? What software looked at my fonts? Is it still installed on my system? Is it still sending the information? What other information is it sending? To whom is the data being sent? To whom are they sending the data? What other uses are being made of the data? Did I approve those uses? When? How?
