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, it's
just tonights copy.

Hi :)
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 support MSO.  
There are 2 lines that say "The free power-packed, Open Source, personal 
productivity suite for:" and the next line misses out saying "BSD" although it 

looks as though there is plenty of room to mention it.  There would be more 

if "MS" was missed off the front of "MS Windows".  Are there non-MS versions of 

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 doesn't 
work on BSD?  We tend not to hear from people where things have gone smoothly 
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 perhaps 
people there have decided that LO doesn't work?

Hi Tom

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?


Hi :)
Yes, i was thinking of changing those few lines to;

The free power-packed, Open Source, personal productivity suite for:
Windows  GNU/Linux  BSD  Mac OS X

At the moment that last line reads
MS Windows  GNU/Linux  Mac OS X

So, my suggestion would only add 1 letter to the line and there appears to be 
just about enough space for that.
Regards from
Tom :)
