0) Since I'm being literal here, what *are* the numbers? How about the
install stats of LibreOffice resulting from the net install disks? Are
there any stats on the absence of LO yum updates on installs known to have

There are no numbers: some people may have an use for an office suite
but are not aware they can get one for free, some people may have it
installed but use less than once in a month...
1) ??? -- although I also had this response when I once sent out a
birthday party invitation in .pps converted from the native (then)
format and people said "I don't use an office suite at
home, I use it at the office; at home I want to relax"
First, it was your mistake, LO/OOo has a nice export to PDF feature.
Second, while many people may have Word installed on their home
computer, a lot less will have PowerPoint (different package, different
price, a harder sale for homes).
3) I used google docs once at someone's behest so that we could
plan a weekend, and guess who didn't bother to use it (here's a hint, I've
already said I used it on that one occasion ...)
Wile Google Docs is a nice piece of technology and may prove useful in
various cases. it is not Free software, so not something to be promoted
