MS Office vs OpenOffice

Filed under
OOo MS Office is a pain. It's not the worst word processor in the world, but I find that Word actually makes it more difficult for me to create and edit my documents. It's much easier to do the same work under OpenOffice.

Filed under
OOo Free office solution is still in the best of shape, based on reactions from project members to Novell developer Michael Meeks's recent pessimistic view. The Linux Foundation is one of many who are concerned. All want one thing: more.

Is a 'dying horse'?

OOo is still not past its expiry date, but more needs to be done to drive community participation and ensure the open source software remains relevant, say industry watchers.

OpenOffice Gripes

Filed under
OOo It’s paper-writing time again, which means I’ve spent many long hours lately with OpenOffice Writer (for now, I’m still using version 2.4). Writer is a great application and a useful tool for getting work done. But there are some components that I continue to find endlessly frustrating, namely… vs. Go-OO: Cutting through the Gordian Knot

Huawei Watch Review: Best Android Wear Smartwatch Available

The Huawei Watch currently offers the best option on the Android Wear platform.

We give the Huawei Watch a hearty recommendation. It is worth paying a little more for this attractive and well-designed Android Wear smartwatch. Read more
