I am adding this suggestion from Michael Bauer as a funding wishlist item:

* Run LO surgeries

We've discovered with our language that the "majority" just use their computers out of the box, whether it's Microsoft or Mac, and are often reluctant to install or uninstall stuff. Even when they know a tool exists, uptake can be real slow but bizarrely, when you organize surgeries where people can bring their laptops, macbooks, tablets, phones etc and you show them what's there and how to install it and how it works, they're a lot more enthusiastic.

In our case we target Gaelic-medium schools, in particular the parents and teachers. That might not work for every language but I just wanted to float the concept of more face-to-face to help people off their shop-bought systems. Perhaps even a chance to team up with Mozilla and a few others to offer a more rounded palette, rather than just LO. We normally present "the lot".
