Introduce OpenOffice.org 3.0 to others via email: invite them from the Ulteo desktop to discover OpenOffice.org with just one click, on the "Share" button and can give a personal tour of the program in realtime. Invitations are sent via email and allow access in either read only or full edit mode, simply by clicking on a link in the email.

Using Ulteo's service, users can exploit features of OpenOffice.org which may be missing from their current desktop software. For example, OpenOffice.org can read and write Microsoft Office files, and generate .pdf format files without requiring any additional software. OpenOffice.org also reads and writes documents in OpenDocument Format, the ISO-approved standard for office documents, which can only be read in Microsoft Office after installing a plug-in.

An introduction to Joplin, an open source Evernote alternative

Joplin is an open source cross-platform note-taking and to-do application. It can handle a large number of notes, organized into notebooks, and can synchronize them across multiple devices. The notes can be edited in Markdown, either from within the app or with your own text editor, and each application has an option to render Markdown with formatting, images, URLs, and more. Any number of files, such as images and PDFs, can be attached to a note, and notes can also be tagged. I started developing Joplin when Evernote changed its pricing model and because I wanted my 4,000+ notes to be stored in a more open format, free of any proprietary solution. To that end, I have developed three Joplin applications, all under the MIT License: for desktop (Windows, MacOS, and Linux), for mobile (Android and iOS), and for the terminal (Windows, MacOS, and Linux). All the applications have similar user interfaces and can synchronize with each other. They are based on open standards and technologies including SQLite and JavaScript for the backend, and Terminal Kit (Node.js), Electron, and React Native for the three front ends. Read more
