If anyone has a quick idea of what text to put there - this is the text
for the LibreOffice listing at the SCALE 9x website - please do send it
to the list here. So otherwise to start it off how about:

"LibreOffice - The premier Free Open Source suite of office
applications. Available for MS Windows, Linux and Mac OSX"

Any other ideas?

"premier" feels a bit uncomfortable...too much hype or marketing
fluff. I think that the tagline stands fine without that anyway...the
Free Open Source suite of office applications. Underpromise,

Sounds about right.

MS seems extraneous...Available for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X. Does
this open up an argument with the GNU/Linux supporters? I have never
heard a civilian/non-techie/real life user refer to GNU/Linux. They
say "Linux".

IMO Linux works, but yes I know what you refer to - It wouldn't bother
me to use the more verbose.

Also, just looking at the entry pages from last years show:
being an example, maybe I want to pull back on that less is more idea,
maybe not quite that much less.

so - for a first paragraph then:

LibreOffice - A Free Open Source suite of office applications. 
Available for Linux, Mac OSX and Windows.

<then something about the Document Foundation for paragraph 2>

<List Modules or Standards compliance for the 3rd paragraph>

Then maybe that is brief enough.
