Thanks, everyone.

The more time you have between the mailed cards and Christmas gives more "enjoyment". I have many people/organizations/companies on my email address book who may enjoy your "Christmas Card". For me, this would be a great way let them know we support our worldwide developers, not just the "product".

Since I read about many USA non-personal use of open source is one the rise, supporting the developers of open source packages is one way to let all of us tell these developers we support their efforts.

SO I say again - Thanks Everyone.


Most users [honest opinion from comments I have been given] do not have time to read blogs and other online reading on "products". They trust others to let them know what may be best for them to use. I have had people trust me to use open source products since OpenOffice added .doc read/write to their office package. I learned of OOo from the author's notes in a book from my favorite SciFi author. Later, I read about LibreOffice coming out when OOo stopped updating/upgrading. I have been a LO users ever since. Most of the users of OOo, who I advised to use it, has switched to LO within a year of my switching to LO as my default office package.

For people who must use MS Office, at work, I have convinced some to use .doc instead of .docx going to people outside of their internal office use. Since different agencies/organizations/companies use various versions of MS Office. For MS Office, and other packages, .doc is the easiest to be read/modified/returned. One day, I would love to see .odt as the default format, since MS does not control it.

Hi everyone,

I'm thinking of making a Christmas card to post on social media and the

blog on the 24th of December. It'd basically be a thank you from the
LibreOffice community to all developers, contributors, users and
supporters, with a group picture from the conference.

Here's one I made in my previous life:

Does anyone have any other ideas what we can do with it?
