I would like to start a discussion to solve the problem of Open Document
Format adoption. Currently (at least in the U.S.) the most prevelant
document format is the Microsoft Office Open XML Forma and older doc/xls/ppt

I believe if we can somehow market the benefits of ODF over Microsoft, then
adoption of LibreOffice could increase dramatically.



I would like to rephrase that - and challenge us to take Frank's
prompting and turn into something.

How I would rephrase is simply this:

I would like to see the group produce a single page of text, with a
statement of some of the benefits gained from using the ODF.

The product would be

1 - a single page on the wiki
2 - text copied to color pdf, made available for download from a link on
the wiki page
3 - a single page flyer, suitable for printing (grey scale), for hand
out at SCALE 9x, in February. (but there are other people going to other
shows first, so getting this put together sooner would be great)

so - there you go - more thoughts?
