Well the user/enthusiast base (perhaps that is the term) sure hit it
big. Just before the announcements (blog, announce list, first press
coverage) the LibreOffice twitter stream was running at it's normal
baseline of ~20 posts per hour - that stream peaked about 2 hours ago at
687 posts per hour - currently running in the low 400's with a bevy of
on-line publications posting release announcement stories within the
last hours. (and when I say bevy I mean bevy - found a 2 paragraph
announcement at the Omaha Nebraska paper's website..Omaha Nebraska?..OK
it wasn't quite as prominent as the daily farm report but one has to
consider the local, which makes it fairly impressive actually)

Really - well if that is what you want...*chuckle*
