This wiki is not necessary for these pages, as the advantages for each target customer segment are 
already identified.
Further, they are GREATLY elaborated on the current website page.

Wrong. I would rather prefer to take away the pages as they are now, especially the "why for business" which is exactly what we should not tell businesses (I have had comments from CIOs who have switched to OOo, and are very negative).

If the pages stay as they are, I will ask the SC to issue a formal request for taking them out, and I will do this soon.

Sorry, but what has been GREATLY elaborated, as you say, has been elaborated in the wrong way and using wrong assumptions (I might be wrong, and I recognize that I have not been able to devote the needed time to website development, but I was focused on other tasks, but I do not remember to have talked about "why" pages with David, and that was the time when I focused for a while on the web site).

The fact that you find "why" pages on MS Office and OOo web sites IS NOT a good enough reason to have them on the LibreOffice web site.

The fact that the general marketing theory speaks about "why" web pages or leaflets or brochures IS NOT a good enough reason for us to do the same.

We have been workign with REAL OOo users for several years now, and we try to avoid past mistakes (where Sun was responsible for most of these mistakes based on a limited understanding of REAL users).

I hope this makes the concept more understandable for everyone.

Ciao, Italo
