The OpenOffice.org Users' Community Site

Filed under
News

A small group is discussing the formation of "The OpenOffice.org Users' Community" website along the lines of The Star Office Users' Portal. The site will include a forum and other services. The idea for the project emerged out of a very long thread discussing ways of dealing with some shortcomings of the present, main, English forum for OOo users.

The discussion is open to anyone willing to join. As well as the StarOffice users' portal, The Ubuntu Community looks like another good model. We do, I think, want our own "look". There is a blog spot which will contain reports on an irregular basis from the private discussions taking place.

The most important point. The public discussion is on another OOo support forum. If you want to join the discussion, please do so. If you have something, such as web design abilities, to contribute, please don't hold back.

So I’m quite familiar with how it is laid out and what it has to offer. Use the Fedora install guide for Anaconda I linked to above if you’re new to it as it might save you some time when installing Korora 21. Read more

How to run Linux and Chrome OS on your Chromebook

Chromebooks are pretty darn handy. Even some hardcore Windows users now acknowledge that a Chromebook might be just what you need for work. But, as great as Chromebooks are, and as much progress as Google has made in getting "Web-only" apps such as Google Docs to work offline, there are still times that you want an application that's only available off-line such as the LibreOffice office suite or the GIMP photo editor. For those times, it's darn handy to be able to run a Linux desktop on a Chromebook. Read more
