And two other arguments, one mine, the other from Jesse:

* The two main use OOo apps have replacements that are good and very
good (abiword, gnumeric).
* OOo, like firefox, is equally promoted on windows.  So it's not a
Linux-specific showcase item.

But I think this line of discussion isn't as productive as discussion
about splitting the two targets of the current desktop spin and what the
requirements might be for having a successful demo-spin.  Is openoffice
a requirement for that audience?
