Hi Michael, :-)

Thanks for these good ideas. Sure we can implement your suggestions.

If you want to help out with screenshots, that's fine, too. I've done
all screenshots under Ubuntu using the Ambiance theme, window only,
with window sized to 1000x750.

You can supply me with that shot and I'll do the rest (I produce a
downsize at 800x600 in png using Gimp, and then another png at 400x300
using Photoshop. Empirically, that seems to produce the best quality.

IMHO, it would be best to keep all the screenshots to this "uniform

Apart from that, we can format the layout the way you want it
(preferably without breaking out of the theme styles).

It would be great if we can work on this together, so that we get the
result you want.

If I were new to LibreOffice and dropped by this section, I would think
automatically of "New Features" compared to what? Was there a previous

Perhaps this section should be re-titled to "Highlighted Features" (or
something like that). I still favour not comparing ourselves to OOo. IMO, we
should forge our own path and let other distro's try to keep pace with us.
At this point, we have the momentum, the interested community contributors,
and talented devs. Other distros should be comparing themselves to us. I
think this would be a better attitude to have.

As far as marketing, sure, we may compare ourselves to other distros, OOo
and MSO. This, IMO, would be better made on a page with a grid with
checkmarks as to what we offer compared to the other distros. We could
reference this page back to the "Highlighted Features" page.

Just my opinion.



I agree with this concern. Yes we are using code from OpenOffice,
BrOffice and OOGo among others, but LibreOffice is a 'new product',
there has been no LibreOffice products before this one, hence we
actually don't have 'new features' just features which make
LibreOffice stand out from the crowd of Office suites.
