Subject Res: Re: What about BrOffice?
Date Mon, 28 Nov 2011 19:08:52 GMT

The history told in Brazil for many users is: BrOffice changed its name to LibreOffice.

So, the damage is already done and we'll need to start almost from the scratch with Apache

If we insist to use the old BrOffice brand, probably we'll just put more noise on the market.

I don't know.. you brought it in ;) :

I do think we want to be Apache OpenOffice in Brazil too,
despite the fact was relatively unknown
there. I just wanted to be sure I can dispose of the old
BrOffice logos and stuff.

We will lose many users but I think they are already
"lost" anyways.
