Hi Italo,

What's the background (for ESC) to decide what leads to the best
software for users?

I apologize for repeating myself, but the ESC will decide upon positive contributions, suggestions or requests. You suggest a feature, promote a technology, contribute a new export filter.

What I mean now with a real example.
What if I would propose to transform the startcenter into a individual desktop with drop and drag like the former integrated desktop of StarOffice. And I would also propose to make it choosable for users:
~ to have it in the LO-window like now the startcenter
~ to dock it like toolbars (perhaps with a constant distance from the dokument-window) ~ to use it like an external "container" of individual folders, files and links.

How would someone decide whether it were a positiv feature for LO or not?
Because no one has a crystall ball to look into the future. And it could be, that such a proposal is denied by LO but ten months later another producer of an office-suit succeeds with just such a feature.

And if it were denied, is it lost than till somebody others makes the same proposal years later. Or is there a system to save proposals for a later check under new conditions.

That's my problem with the decisions.
But it hasn't to be answered right now. I'll ask such things after the 3.3-release again.
