[tdf-discuss] Re: [libreoffice-marketing] Marketing material suggestion: Why LibreOffice?




I wonder when in 2012 did MS create this document, since they use OOo instead of AOO?

     "Considering-LibreOffice-and-OO-v2.pdf"

Then there is this interesting "warranty statement". [bottom of page 3]

   "This document is for informational purposes only. MICROSOFT MAKES
   NO WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, IN THIS"

To me that states that they can include miss-information and be covered for that. Also they are implying that MSO is now on Smart Phones and not via the next item "Browser". [bottom right of page 2]

There are things in this document that are correct. LO and OOo [not AOO] lacks certain items [by name] that are owned by MS/MSO.

I really would like to know how much MSO feels that LO and OOo are going to take their market away for them to spend time to make this second version of this document.

Hello Charles,

I would be happy and honored to take a more active role.
LibreOffice is truly amazing. I am so excited, I printed the 2013 LO
calendar and it's on my desk wall now :)

Anyways, I think our competitor's arguments are aimed at business users,
not individuals.
And for those businesses that required the extra "features" such as email
and collaboration, well, there is a solution out there offered by Novell:

- Novell Open Workgroup Suite
http://www.novell.com/products/openworkgroupsuite/
- Novell Open Workgroup Suite for Small Business
http://www.novell.com/products/openworkgroupsuite/smallbiz/
(both include LibreOffice)

You probably knew about these already, but thought it's worth mentioning
again for anyone who wasn't aware.


Cheers,

Immanuel

Hello Immanuel,

Nice pick! it's The First time we got mentionned by our biggest
competitor, so it's time for a bottle of champagne :-D

More seriously, if these are three arguments they can come up with it
seems we got a looong way.simce 2005 or so.

-Pivot table: Bullshit, we do it just as well only differently.
-Collaboration: depends... We have collaborative features (cmis anyone?)
too
-No Outlook?... Seriously? Well, no Outlook, true. But I can think of many
arguments why this is a good choice.

We need something ( a webpage) that takes what we have in the 4.0 and
compares it witg MSOffice. Anyone would like to drive this?

Best,
Charles.

Hello all,

Microsoft put out a three-page document that hits on some of the
weaknesses
of LO (and bundles LO with OOo):

http://download.microsoft.com/download/D/0/D/D0DA0C4B-22DE-40C7-A84D-0C7E03347A9C/Considering-LibreOffice-and-OO-v2.pdf
Is there some materials that can explain the strong points of LO and
offer
counter-arguments to what MS says ?

Some of the key points would be:
- lack of calendaring/email
- collaboration tools
- pivot tables
