Pushed a new update to the file on the wiki
Some text updates coming from the us_mktg list, primarily the
removal of the
secondary line for supported platforms.
(mentioning BSD on interior being one)
Comments, suggestions welcomed as it is never really done, really,
just tonights copy.
I still don't see the point of removing or avoiding mentioning that
LO can be
run on other platforms, particularly when those platforms don't
There are 2 lines that say "The free power-packed, Open Source,
productivity suite for:" and the next line misses out saying "BSD"
looks as though there is plenty of room to mention it. There would
be more room
if "MS" was missed off the front of "MS Windows". Are there non-MS
Windows? Do MS require that MS is always put in front of
"Windows"? (in which
case a vast amount of writing about Windows is in breach.)
Have i missed a day or 2 worth of emails explaining that LO suddenly
work on BSD? We tend not to hear from people where things have gone
and have only heard from a couple of people that have had minor
issues with LO
on BSD. I take that as a good sign. I am not on the devs list so
people there have decided that LO doesn't work?
No one is saying it doesn't work on BSD - the discussion on the US mktg
list was more to do with "What platforms do you find when you visit the
main LibO site" and in that respect the answer is, these three (win,
linux, OS X). So the idea was to keep the marketing piece in alignment
with the website.
Finally, there is a reason this is done on the open mailing list - so if
you have some specific wording?
