Remember the users.

TDF was born to bring back the user at the center of the project. Users generate and manage documents.

Now that MS are giving away Office for free (on the web), or cheap (£40 to UK school
students - free to many University students).  Now that MS are buying up chunks of
commonly used apps (have you seen the advertising on Facebook and how it links with
