Hi Mike, :-)

I know this will likely be covered in the review of Information and
website architecture that is currently going on, but I have a few
ideas on how these 'why' pages are structured.

We already have information in 'features' as to why each part of the
product is good to use and we cover most of the other topics lower on
the 'why for home' page in the features section.

Personally I would love to see use case examples in the 'why' pages
rather than reiterating what has already been said in the features
section. I have been looking at the 'why for business' pages offline
and trying to put together a proposal in amongst busy work.

For example, 'Why for business' could cover:
Business intelligence and analysis using Calc and Base
Project management using Gantt charts in Calc
Professional presentations using Impress
Report writing with Witer
SixSigma pareto charts with Calc
Scientific journal writing with Math and Writer
*I am currently working on the content for these*

I would love to see us demonstrate cases where the suite works
together to allow the targeted end user to become more productive
during common tasks.

This was my original idea in the IA proposal months ago, and I think
it still makes sense to implement.
Does anyone have any thoughts on the matter?

Michael Wheatland

Yes, this makes sense to me. Erm... Is there somewhere I can read your
IA proposal, Mike? Maybe we can work on attack plan for each page, or
maybe you already had some ideas in that respect that we could

I'd guess that such a study of practical usage examples for each
segment would be likely to go to around 750 words per page, if one is
to give decent coverage without actually writing a book about it. What
are your ideas and estimates about that?

In any case, I'd be very interested to hear more and see this go
forward. Can we work on it together?
