Use OpenOffice.org online with Ulteo

Filed under
OOo

The latest version of OpenOffice.org is now available using a browser with a single click of a mouse, with no download or installation process ('no install') of the productivity suite required. This new service by Ulteo offers many benefits for users of the productivity suite, and has been well received by early beta users across Windows, Linux and Mac operating systems.

As well as offering instant 'no-install' access, Ulteo's service also provides OpenOffice.org users with instant collaboration capabilities. A user working with OpenOffice.org on the Ulteo server can invite other people to work with him or her on a shared document in real time. 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.

Making OpenOffice.org available through a browser should also help accelerate its adoption by an even broader user base. Users can introduce OpenOffice.org to others via email, invite them to discover OpenOffice.org with just one click, and can give a personal tour of the program. Very soon, bloggers and journalists will be able to add a link to OpenOffice.org in their articles for readers to click through and try the program.

John McCreesh, Marketing Project Lead at OpenOffice.org, welcomed this announcement by Ulteo.

Distro Development: Rescatux and Bodhi

  • Rescatux 0.40 beta 9 released
    Many code in the grub side and in the windows registry side has been rewritten so that these new features could be rewritten. As a consequence it will be easier to maintain Rescapp. Finally the chntpw based options which modify the Windows registry now perform a backup of the Windows registry files in the unlikely case you want to undo some of the changes that Rescapp performs. I guess that in the future there will be a feature to be able to restore such backups from Rescapp itself, but, let’s focus on releasing an stable release. It’s been a while since the last one. UEFI feedback is still welcome. Specially if the Debian installation disks work for you but not the Rescatux ones.
  • Bodhi 4.0.0 Updates and July Donation Totals
    Late last month I posted a first alpha look at Bodhi 4.0.0. Work since then has been coming along slowly due to a few unpredictable issues and my own work schedule outside of Bodhi being hectic over the summer. Bodhi 4.0.0 will be happening, but likely not with a stable release until September. I am traveling again this weekend, but am hoping to get out a full alpha release with 32bit and non-PAE discs next week.
