OOo

If you’ve been frustrated with what you can do with OpenOffice.org, then you’re probably looking for more. And that’s what Go-oo can help you with. Go-oo is OpenOffice.org with much much more! It bundles some features which lets you work better with files made with Microsoft Office and WordPerfect too. How’s that for compatibility?

So let’s have a quick listing of what Go-oo offers us:

* Better interoperability with Excel.
* VBA support – just in case you do need it for certain things to improve your productivity and workflow.
* Support for files made in MS Works.
* Lotus Word Pro import – in case that is what you use, instead of MS Office.
* Support for multimedia, via Gstreamer.
* You could have it running in the background via Unix systray quickstarter.

Ryzen 7 2700X CPUFreq Scaling Governor Benchmarks On Ubuntu Linux

With this week's Ryzen 5 2600X + Ryzen 7 2700X benchmarks some thought the CPUFreq scaling driver or rather its governors may have been limiting the performance of these Zen+ CPUs, so I ran some additional benchmarks this weekend. Those launch-day Ryzen 5 2600X / Ryzen 7 2700X Ubuntu Linux benchmarks were using the "performance" governor, but some have alleged that the performance governor may now actually hurt AMD systems... Ondemand, of course, is the default CPUFreq governor on Ubuntu and most other Linux distributions. Some also have said the "schedutil" governor that makes use of the kernel's scheduler utilization data may do better on AMD. So I ran some extra benchmarks while changing between CPUFreq's ondemand (default), performance (normally the best for performance, and what was used in our CPU tests), schedutil (the newest option), and powersave (if you really just care about conserving power).
