Hi there! I met Mirek in LibreGraphicsMeeting 2013 and talked about how few
committed UX designers LibreOffice has, that shocked me. I'm not interface
designer but I could make a promotional video with motion graphics (like
Jakub Steiner did on Gnome3 promos), in order to gather developers and
But first, there are some questions.
Does LibreOffice need a radical change at all to *differenciate* itself
from Microsoft's Office, being not only the free alternative, but the
standard office suite?
If so, does LibreOffice need promotion in order to grow the developer team
and make this change?
A promotional video would say something like "Libre Office is The Standard,
used by many millions of users, and yet it has a small developer team wich
need you involved".
Otherwise, if this radical change is going to happen without need of a
promotion, the video could be launched afterwards, announcing the brand-new
LibreOffice and its will to become The Standard.
I've beek lurking the mailing lists and you can smell the will to change,
at least in UX/UI matters. I'm just trying to help this to happen.
