<br>Suggestions and contributions on the OpenOffice files especially is<br>still very welcome. Like: can anyone think of some interesting numerical<br>material (!?) that can be used in a spreadsheet and yield nice plots?<br>

<br><br>As far as numerical data is concerned, I was thinking of doing something like this along with a related presentation:<br><br>Plot data showing linux adoption trends over the last few years. At first I thought it would be interesting to show some data from distrowatch that demonstrated the rising popularity of Ubuntu as compared to other linux distros, but i feel that would present a poor image to new Linux users (since it seems to show competition amongst the linux community).
<br><br>The related presentation that I was envisioning would be a "PR" feeling document that would explain why people like Linux so much, some of the great things that make Linux unique and then show adoption trends with a graph from the spreadsheet.
<br><br>There could be a writer document that is a "welcome to your Linux desktop" letter to accompany this information. <br><br>I hope to have some time to work on this over the weekend. I'll see if I can get it done Friday night (GMT -5), but I'm also working on a 6,000 word article which I hope to get paid for.
