Hi All,

from my personal perspective, I don't use personas, I never did. But...

I taught hundreds of people, children and adults as well and I can say most people like "funny little harmless" things like this.

Just imagine how many users change their desktop background, even if they cannot see it the whole day. They simply just like personalize it. I think such a little thing that makes LO more attractive for the newcomers, should be kept.

If it breaks then it should be fixed.

I'd have to agree with the idea of removing Personas. Why? Because they keep 
breaking. A couple of prebuilt solid themes would do the trick. Allow people to 
make and tweak themes as well, and even add images. It could, perhaps, still be 
compatible with the Persona system, but rely only on LO to function, as I know 
some issues have been caused on Mozilla's end.

Hello, all. I agree with "killing" Firefox personas. And I like adding just 4-5 
solid color themes.

I've (manually) added the LibreOffice 4 Light Ambiance persona from
Firefox on my trainer PC

Adding them is a chore: you've got to use the advanced mode because, as
already stated, the UI is not working anymore for a loooong time.

After having doubts about personas (in fact I was very reluctant to
using them), I can tell that it draws attention during training sessions ;-)

So, I'd strongly vote to keep (and fix) the personas thingy and against
having only solid themes.
