Marketing … The discussion was around the idea and the focusing marketing messages on the LibreOffice technology. TDF (via LibreOffice technology) provides the technological basis that empowers other companies to provide other product and services.
TBH - that’s barely true. I mean, it empowers a small number of small companies to develop variants of LibreOffice. That doesn’t count. I mean, you can say whatever you want, but - if you ask me, it will be perceived as vapid marketing rhetoric.
ODF, however, is a valid thing to tout on its own: “LO is good because it adheres to the ODF - a free, open and well-specified document format”. But - I would really refrain from calling it “LibreOffice Technology”, because that suggests it is app-specific - like OOXML. It exists independently (well, somewhat) and that’s probably for the best.
LibreOffice on Windows … app stores … The status and number of downloads for each platform was discussed … In Microsoft App Store, the usage rate is about 80% of the installs,
Usage rate of what? Installs of what?
The crash rate is in the lower 50% percentile, and the retention rate (for the productivity category) is in the higher 50% percentile.
What crashes? Retention of what/whom through what change?
In Microsoft App Store,
What about chocolatey? Do you follow statistics there? I’m not sure how large it is relative to MS’ app store, but I know LO has lots of downloads there. Plus, what fraction of LO Windows users do we believe uses any app store at all, as opposed to “just downloading LO”?
The new website is currently online for testing
I hope there’s an arrangement for it to be easily translated into other languages, rather than people having to set up identical translated copies of the site.
