StarOffice is invisible

I went to Borders the other night to see if there were any books on StarOffice or OpenOffice.org. Not a single one, but dozens on MSFT Office. What's up with that? Are we suffering from "If you build it, they will come" syndrome? Then I went to the web site of Encore Software, the US retail distributor of StarOffice. I didn't see SO listed on their home page among the games they sell, so used their search facility. It came up with nothing. We have an excellent product that sells at a fraction of the price of its only real competitor -- maybe we should tell the world about it.

David,
In Germany the situation is very different. In one large local book store there are about as many books about OpenOffice.org/StarOffice as there are about Microsoft Office. You can find the different titles at Amazon.de.
That does not help you in the US, but it shows that many books about OpenOffice.org and StarOffice are actually being written.
Best regards, Erwin
