How can OpenOffice.org raise funds

Getting off the shadow of Sun might be the best blessing OOo will face, simply because we will have the hability to market OOo as an entity that can win contracts, strike deals and just behave more like a real entity with real impact not just on the computer screen but on the executive lounge.

Accepting corporate sponsorship can only be obtained if we continue to provide benefits such as costumization, migration, trainning and many other value chain.

OOo should remain free but other chapters of the value chain should start getting more profitable.

We do need advertising, we need public awareness fast and we need business developers that can make OOo give back to it.
