I've been contemplating the driving arguments for libO in a target
audience. My ideal user:
o works in the public space
o wondering if this whole "cloud thing" is worth investigating, but are
wary of abandoning existing dedicated desktop software.

o wants to shift expenses from licensing
o wants to use open data formats, esp. with respect to archiving
o might resonate with the freedom that accompanies source code availability
o rely on tech specialists to recommend/install/support software on
So, I'm contemplating a press release that would attract the attention
