So all people that, like me, believe in Free Software and LibreOffice do

you agree?

I agree with you of course and I would help the website team myself if I
have not so much on my table for Libo currently, believe me. But I'm
sure they have understand your message.

I do not agree that action is so urgent. Most people just don't care
what monitor is displayed. All-in-ones are more and more common, so
not everyone sees a Mac in everything.

Re-read the whole thread. That *is* an iMac, and Samsung has been sued for elements of his tablets that are "are recalling Apple brand/style". Again, is not "just hardware", is a symbol of something completely against FOSS and what (at this point I must write "should be") our values.

But they are still doing nothing about it!!! Is just a matter of removing
the iMacs (very easy), use the eraser like I did (easy), and, even better,
move that page to !!!!!!

Providing updated graphics would be much easier than all this talk.

Yes please do it or remove the page until is ready, I'm not a designer.
Is like me, as a developer, create a test version of LiBo that saves files only in M$format, and don't put in a test branch but in the main download page as the official version and ask "what do you think?". Then you, that value the mission of spread Oped Formats and know that is one of the main reason of LiBo existence, complain to me, but I reply you "I will not take down that version, the fastest way to solve is you to dig the code and solve the problem yourself". And if you complain again I say "Most people just don't care what format is used. Doc/Xls formats are more and more common, so not everyone sees a M$/proprietary problems everywhere".

Give me ftp account (or whatever is needed) to the site and I will do it

You don't need any account to create updated images.

no, it's needed to remove them if no one is going to provide alternate images that are not so embarassing for FOSS and LiBo community and against FOSS.
Put the new page online only when is ready.

So while this is a legitimate request, it is blown out of proportion
in my opinion. Lenovo, Asus, etc. make All-in-ones with similar look
(i.e. screen with black bezel around, and a silver/light grey bottom
part below the screen).

Do you say it to prove that creating a iMac clone image has been a deliberate action? Just comparing an asus one, then the most "similar" asus all in one I've found with "our generic all in one" and with iMac:

It's my last post on this, all what should have being said by me has been said.
Best regards
