Well said!

Being installed in India, I have seen first hand how un-wired people are
around here. So a plain desktop is still a must for the next little while.

Looking at the future, I am remembering the Web4All event at the WWW
conference. There was a constant focus on enabling the Web for mobile

Longer-term, I'm guessing that smartphones' prices will keep on going
down over the years, so that the average Indian will eventually be able
to have a mini-computer in their pockets. By then, everyone should have
enabled 3G services on their mobiles and the providers may even be
giving 3G-like speeds on their networks.
I'm guessing that Westerners will have 5G by then :)

Now, until we reach that point, I think LO should consider building
something that is very light to download. At one rupee per Mb, it can
add up very quickly. Maybe a Web-enabled option would make sense, but it
should be a very no-frills thing.

I believe the best feature for the enterprise will be to port

just a
browser to run.

If LibreOffice doesn't go in direction WebBased, it will be soon
in the enterprise (...)

"The enterprise" is not the only (potential) user of LibreOffice.
There is a significant part of the world that does not want to or cannot
depend on network connections for every type of work, e.g. because not
everyone is on the Internet [1] or because they have their own reasons
for not using "software as a service".

LibreOffice and listed them in

Some are quite easy to implement, other may require a longer time for
development, but all are based on real demand from people that use
LibreOffice in a enterprise production environment. That is,  they
are not
crazy ideas at all. :-)
