So does anyone know a way to get the White House, or the proper people in the US government, to look at LibreOffice's efforts in the open source community and to review the software package? The article seems to be a possible boost to the several packages it named that the White House and other agencies use. What would such an article do for LibreOffice if the White House started to use LibreOffice?

I don't have any quick answers for you other than there is a lot of work going on in this space:


Well, it is a thought though.

I have hear of the before, but do not know what they are all about.

But, the idea of an endorsement from a government agency may be a big help when people start talking about the reasons "they" should use open source software, and LibreOffice specifically. The more governments/agencies, big businesses, publications, etc., etc., that endorse LibreOffice, the better it looks for the smaller businesses, organizations, etc., etc., would feel about trying LibreOffice for their office suite needs.

I am not a marketing person, but I know when I was "talking up" over the past few years, I found that if I could state that "this publication" or "that government agency" is now using OOo for its needs, the more the person [or organization reps] listened to me. I have a few people and groups that basically say that if I use the software, they will give it a try. It is harder for the others though.

So, if there is a list being developed somewhere that states that this publication, organization, business, government, endorses the use of LibreOffice as a good alternative to Microsoft Office Suite, it would be a help. I know there is a list online of the articles that mention LibreOffice, but adding businesses and such to the list would be helpful to people like me who wants to convince people that LibreOffice is the solution to there office needs.
