Another Real-life Open-Source Test: An Academic Presentation

Filed under
LibO
OSS

Lately, I haven't been able to write much. The reason? I was busy finishing up some details for my thesis-advancement presentation that took place last Friday.

As an advocate of Open Source, I decided since I stated this blog not to say anything good about Free Software if first I haven't used it myself. That's why whenever I say a newbie can use a distro, it is because I, being a newbie myself, have been able to use it.

Right now, I am test driving Mepis 11 Beta 2. Mepis originally came with OpenOffice, but its developer decided to use LibreOffice after the Beta release.

Some of the community members were a bit worried about the change for they thought LibreOffice was still beta, which is not true. The first release of LibreOffice has reached its final developmental stage already.

So, it was time for me to test LibreOffice.
