Problems with adoption as far as I can ascertain are as follow:

The single biggest problems with adoption is lack of awareness.

It is possible to solve feature problems, it is not possible to solve
the lack of awareness.

No one is going to install an unknown software, many are going to accept
feature limitations of a well known software.

Please remember than in Europe, where the community has marketed the
product, market share is over 20%.

In the US, where Sun has marketed the product, market share is 0%.

Howdy Italo,

that's not true - end user / small business / and commercial size
adoption is far from nil - not 20$ but depending on whose numbers your
use it is from 7% - 11%. It was the same web based survey that rendered
the 20% number for some EU locals that put US at 9% [1]

But that is not to detract from your overall point regarding recognition
and those numbers are for OO.o not LibreOffice...

Best wishes,
