Reddit: What graphical editor to create professional tables with pre-defined layouts?

Saturday 17th of January 2015 07:52:05 PM

Dear fellow writers,

What graphical editor can you recommend me to create professional tables particularly for the usage in academic papers and technical reports?

See this example table taken from an academic paper:

  • I don't want to write code (for instance LaTeX)
  • I don't want to take care of the design but choose from pre-defined layouts
  • I want a simple interface allowing me to focus on the core process of entering data into cells, columns and rows.
  • Despite that wish for a simple to user interface I want to be able to create complex table layouts if necessary

Thank you for your advice!

Slashdot: Linus On Diversity and Niceness In Open Source

Saturday 17th of January 2015 04:07:00 PM
An anonymous reader writes "Linus Torvalds has sent a lengthy statement to Ars Technica responding to statements he made in a conference in New Zealand. One of his classic comments in NZ was: "I'm not a nice person, and I don't care about you. I care about the technology and the kernel — that's what's important to me." On diversity, he said that "the most important part of open source is that people are allowed to do what they are good at" and "all that stuff is just details and not really important." Now he writes: "What I wanted to say — and clearly must have done very badly — is that one of the great things about open source is exactly the fact that different people are so different", and that "I don't know where you happen to be based, but this 'you have to be nice' seems to be very popular in the US," calling the concept of being nice an "ideology"."
