Just a thought of an average user.

Microsoft is forced by the European community to give user the choice
what browser they want to use (IE, Firefox, Chrome, Safari ...).
Microsoft even got a penalty for refusing it.

It would be a nice option, if a buyer of a computer can select as well
which office suite he want to use. Let say MSO, OO or LO.
This could increase the number off users using LibreOffice. To reach
this goal TDF needs to start a lobby in Brussels.
