I like that slogan.

Met me add another which I've used lately and kind of like:
"LibreOffice; Come for the software - Stay for the community!"
Interesting slogan proposal. If it resonates, no clue.

Personal history. I didn't have any interest in a community when looking LibreOffice up. I simply searched for free (as in free beer) Office Suite for my Mac.
My Mac was expensive enough.

I surely wouldn't have gotten in touch with the Community either. It's only because I got kind of frustrated by some bug. Which didn't get by itself (waited maybe 6 months). And later on some e-mail from from - I think - Steve -_-

So really stumbled into being here. Having plenty of free time often enough and affinity with software (and to some extend bugs), I kept going. And well at some point one of your report fixed :P. Which kind of addictive. Waiting for a bibisect taking ages, so you try to do it yourself. Before you now you're around for 5 years or so. However not because I'm into a tight relationship with LibreOffice Community per se.

Nor having a some strong believe regarding to open source. Any software which fits my specifications will do. Free is obviously nicer compared paid. And if it's paid it's all about price/quality ratio (and amount of use). Surely asked myself number of times should I simply buy a (non-LibreOffice based) Office Suite. It's more that tolerance for bugs going up if it's free. I'm not an true user of LibreOffice (or any Office Suite) at all. Using LibreOffice more for fun bughunting sessions.
