alright so then - taking Carl's ideas and doing a little editing - how
about this:


LibreOffice is (a) Free Open Source suite of office applications,
available for Linux, Mac OSX and Windows.

LIbreOffice is developed and supported by The Document Foundation,
an independent self-governing meritocracy (committed to) focused on delivering
the best document production software to users, on any platform
- period.

Created by leading members of the (OpenOffice) Community,
and building on years of dedicated work within that project,
the Document Foundation was created from the belief that the culture
of an independent foundation brings out the best in contributors
of all types.

LibreOffice (uses the most widely accepted Open Document Format and) includes applications for all 
aspects of document

Writer - word processor
Calc - spreadsheet
Impress - presentations
Draw - graphics
Base - datebase frontend
Math - equation editor

(For more information, please visit<a
href="";>The Document Foundation</a>
or<a href="";>the LibreOffice website</a>.)

We should ask for forgiveness rather than permission on the OpenOffice
vs business, apparently just like Oracle is doing.
I realize that the way I've used Open Document Format is not correct,
but I like the impression it leaves...LibO supports the Open Document
Format. The quasi-monopolist supports a subset of the Office Open XML
format of the Open Document standard.
Not sure that LibreOffice runs on "any platform". Maybe that should be
"all popular platforms" or "cross platform". Not a big deal. It
actually would be a good argument to have...who supports the most

We should not be advertising anything that we are not. We do not support "nay platform". At this point I can only see "Windows" (our largest user base), "Linux" and "Mac". Unless I am mistaken, these are the only ones supported at this time.


Alright I don't want to make it much if any longer, but I also would like to get something explicit 
in there about ODF

Added the bit about ODF and URLs that someone suggested.

Any good ideas on edits there.

Thanks again

Once this blurb is completed, could we make a copy available on the marketing wiki pages somewhere. It would be excellent if we were to make use of this as a baseline for all other conferences/meets. From there we could modify it accordingly if needed for other conferences. But it is a good tool to have in our marketing toolkit.
