OpenOffice on Ulteo in Pictures

Filed under
OOo

Today my colleague Steven J. Vaughn Nichols is reporting on Mandriva founder Gael Duval's Ulteo, which now offers online access to the OpenOffice.org productivity suite. I'm an OpenOffice.org user and overall fan of software as a service--particularly when it's a free service--so I thought I'd take Ulteo for a spin.

It took me a few tries to access OpenOffice.org on Ulteo, and when I finally made it in, I received this somewhat disconcerting message. Apparently, my previous failed attempts left some loose ends in my Ulteo hosted home directory.

I forged ahead, broke the lock held by the phantom user, and I was staring down the barrel of Calc. Time to spend some time with my fantasy basketball spreadsheet, in all of its unsupported-by-google-apps functions glory.

Good luck

You have to register. Against my better judgement, I did so and then ran into the usual Ulteo shambles. Good luck to anyone with the patience to persevere.
