Hi Drew, :-)

Or, if you feel able to help out by taking screenshots yourself, then:

a) a big thanks for the helping hand! ;-)

b) take them under MS Windows using a DARK SLATE GRAY theme (window frame, etc)
(I fail to believe that Bill is going to sue us because we took
screenshots of our own product under MS Windows...)
Sorry to insist but I don't want to take the risk :
This is what is written on the site :*
Requirements for Allowed Uses*

For permission to be granted for any uses allowed by these guidelines, you must comply with the following four requirements:


     If your use includes references to a Microsoft product, you must
     use the full name of the product. When referencing any Microsoft
     trademarks, follow the General Microsoft Trademark Guidelines


     You must include the following statement: "Used with permission
     from Microsoft."


     Your use may not be obscene or pornographic, and you may not be
     disparaging, defamatory, or libelous to Microsoft, any of its
     products, or any other person or entity.


     You may link to Microsoft content by using either a plain text
     link with words such as "This way to" or by
     participating in an applicable Link Logo program. No other images
     may be used as a link to a Microsoft site.

Screen Shots

You may not use screen shots of Microsoft product boot-up screens, opening screens, "splash screens," or screens from beta release products or other products that have not been commercially released. You may use other screen shots in advertising, in documentation (including educational brochures), in tutorial books, in videotapes, or on Web sites, provided that, in addition to the requirements above, you:


     Do not alter the screen shot except to resize it.


     Do not use portions of screen shots.


     Do not include screen shots in your product user interface.


     Do not use screen shots that contain third-party content.


     Do not use screen shots that contain an image of an identifiable

So it is clear that you're not allowed to take screenshots showing LibO on a Windows system. And I don't find very sexy to add on each "Used with permission from Microsoft"

As said you can adapt the LibO theme and your Linux them to look more Windows like and everything will be ok. This is what we have done for years for OOo and guess what, we have sell several copy of it ;-)

Kind regards
