Re: [tdf-discuss] How did AOO figure it was worth $21 Million dollars a day or $7 billion per year?

Hello Tim,

I suspect they multiply the standard package price of MS Office and
multiply that by their numbers of stated downloads, then divide it by
365. At least that's how I would do it.

I cannot figure out any way.  Of course it makes great Marketing Copy.  
We are giving our users some much product value, we must be the better 
product.  FUD or what?


  The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) announced that Apache OpenOffice 
has a value of $21 million a day.

ASF officials said Apache OpenOffice has averaged 131,455 downloads per 
day since its 3.4 release last May. That represents an average value to 
the public of $21 million per day or $7.61 billion per year, ASF said.
