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

I really think we need to "advertise" the number of downloads for each of our versions.

Actually, if we combined them like AOO did, it would be very misleading.

How many download of 3.6.5 and 4.0.0 has there been so far. How many for 3.6.4 vs. 3.6.5? That would be useful.

Yes, there are a lot of people who get their version form the Linux repositories or some other downloadable site.

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.

to users?

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.
