2012 Plans and Dreams From the Linux Blogs and Beyond

Well 2012 has arrived at last, and not a moment too soon!

Not only can we finally dispense with all the holiday festivities, but we can also say goodbye to a year that was far too tempestuous for comfort. Here's hoping that 2012 will be a lot less exciting here in the technology world!

Of course, one last obligation still to be fulfilled on this cusp of the new year is the making of resolutions. Linux Girl's is to get up close and personal with more of the distros out there, beyond just Ubuntu and Mint; she's also hoping to dust off and photograph her world-class collection of plastic toy penguins.

As for other bloggers? Well, they've had plenty of other things in mind.

Google and ODF

  • Fuzz about Google supporting odf
    First of all because the support comes way too late. Secondly because its not even close to be good. Back several years ago Google was politically supporting the process of getting odf approved as an open standard but they never really bothered. The business was clearly to keep both odf and ooxml/docx out of their products and keep their own proprietary document format. Implementing good and solid interoperability is actually not difficult but it is a huge task. Google could have done this three or four years ago if they wanted to. But they didn't. Both proprietary software vendors has been busy making interoperability difficult while the providers of true open standards has been improving interoperability month by month.
  • Google Promises Better Compatibility with Open Source Documents
    Google (GOOG) may soon be taking open OpenDocumentFormat (ODF), the native file format in virtually all modern open source word processors, like LibreOffice and OpenOffice, more seriously. That's according to a statement from Google's open source chief speaking about the future of the company's cloud-based app suite.

Fedora 21

Fedora 21 is out and I’ve been able to spend some time with it. The last version of Fedora I looked at was more than two years ago, so there have been quite a few changes since then. The new version of Fedora comes in three basic options: Fedora Cloud, Fedora Server and Fedora Workstation. Read more
