Multiplatform OpenOffice.org 3.0 Benchmark

Filed under
OOo

It's time for an OpenOffice.org benchmark rematch. Go-oo has been proudly boasting it is "Better, Faster, Freer," but last time when we tested OpenOffice.org 2.4, Go-oo came in fourth place out of four. Since then Go-oo developers addressed some problems, and now we're checking a new version 3.0 and adding benchmarks on Windows.

Editions

The following editions were tested. The abbreviated code identifies each edition in the charts.

* Ubu Go-oo: Universal Linux build of Go-oo 3.0.0 on Ubuntu.

* Ubu PPA: OpenOffice.org 3.0.1 on Ubuntu. Ubuntu 8.10 normally comes with OpenOffice.org 2.4, so this is the version from the popular OpenOffice.org PPA. Like the OpenOffice.org edition that ships with Ubuntu, PPA is based on Go-oo.

* Ubu StarOffice: StarOffice 9 on Ubuntu with Java JRE 1.6.

* Ubu Vanilla: Vanilla OpenOffice.org 3.0.1 on Ubuntu. Vanilla means it is the unmodified version available from www.openoffice.org.

* Win Vanilla: Vanilla OpenOffice.org 3.0.1 on Windows without a Java JRE.

* Win Portable: Portable OpenOffice.org 3.0.1 on Windows modifies the vanilla edition with executable compression, by removing some files, and by making other changes.

* Win StarOffice: StarOffice 9 on Windows with Java JRE 1.6.

Bitcoin for FOSS Projects

There has been a growing interest among Free and Open Source Software ("FOSS") projects in the use of crypto-currencies such as Bitcoin and its myriad derivatives (hereinafter "Bitcoin"). However, uncertainty over the treatment of these currencies by US law has dissuaded developers from from using Bitcoin. This post provides some general guidance on the legal consequences of using such convertible virtual currency. Please note that different jurisdictions address the issues related to Bitcoin differently. The comments provided in this post are restricted to U.S. law. If you are uncertain of your legal obligations, contact the Software Freedom Law Center or seek other legal counsel. Read more

Ozon OS "Hydrogen" Alpha Available For Testing

Ozon OS Ozon OS "Hydrogen" alpha is based on Fedora 20 and it uses GNOME Shell and Gnome apps by default, customized with various extensions. The newly released alpha is aimed at developers and ships with only part of the Atom Shell: Atom Dock, Launcher and Panel, so it's not really interesting for regular desktop users. However, the beta (and obviously, the final release) should include a lot more exiting stuff. Read more
