I strongly agree.  Furthermore there is one topic used by experts (and more times in political 
debates):  open data (format).  With LibreOffice  (compared to ms office or other proprietary 
software) the user keeps control on the data or files forever (while people using proprietary data 
formats depend on the policy and decisions of the software houses; ms office versions are generally 
not compatible with each other).  So we make sure users can keep control and access to files and 
data forever  (even using new software versions or other softwares).  This topic is very important 
for public institutions, governments, hospitals and researchers, who has generally to keep the data 
forever.  Even researchers have to keep the data for long times and make it widely accessible.  I 
don't think enterprises, which sell licenses,  keep these aspects in mind.

I think the zeitgeist is always useful with marketing. There is lots of
reasons you can use to show off the advantages you have over others, wether
people agree or not is debatable. However you cut your cloth accordingly.
LibreOffice has a clear advantage with the 'freedom, ' 'privacy' and
community aspects that other proprietary solutions can't compete with.
