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

Italo, you are a firm defender of LibreOffice but sometimes your hate for AOO
and Rob Weir blind you and then you loose any argument.

Do you really believe that a Mongolian who was used to use OOo in
Mongolian is happy to use AOO in English? This is just an example, but
the concept is exactly the same for another 80 languages, which might be
minor for someone speaking only English but are not minor for the people
speaking that language.

No one mentioned updates. The statistics are for downloads per country. And
yes, there are for sure many Mongolians that speak and read English and are
happy to use a software in English. I am Portuguese but I prefer to use the
software in English.

Assuming that people can only use a software if it is available in their
native language is both absurd and paternalist.

In any case I agree with a previous argument

Instead of advertising the value of Free Software to the public (and
LibreOffice is Free Software as AOO also is), you only think in a
LibreOffice versus AOO pattern. 

As a Director of the Document Foundation it would be much more interesting
if you provided similar information ABOUT LibreOffice  instead of AGAINST
