Hi All,

I have a customer base over two counties.  I have been trying to get them
interested in OO, but with only limited success.  The problem usually
comes down to the customers just don't like OO.  Too many bugs; too hard
to use.  (And, yes, some are incapable of learning anything new, so you
are off the hook on that one.)

My experience with my users is that they never report bugs to projects
like this.  My experience with Firefox is much different, but a lot
of their users have a different culture than OO.  They do report bugs.

Would you consider adding an icon to the top of the window bar called
"Report a bug".  This the standard office worker/clerk typist would 
use.  It would also help increase the quality of OO, which in my
experience with my users, is the main stumbling block to its acceptance.


I have even had a lady go out on the economy and buy her own copy of
Office Basic because she had a meltdown over OO Writer's bugs

This is not useful enhancement for an Office Productivity Application. And it won't solve your problem.
I don't think that your users like OOo better when they can submit issue direct in OOo. It won't reduce the amount of issues (to many bugs is not a helpful justification). A report bugs button won't make OOo easier to use.
