FOSDEM 2006 - KOffice and a lost Kubuntu CD

Filed under
KDE

I just came back from FOSDEM, and before FOSDEM I've been in Sweden for some weeks, but I'll blog about that a little later. And it seems like others were already faster than me to blog about FOSDEM.

Of course we had a KDE DevRoom which was - IMO - well situated, in the main building and big enough, just opposite of the (from left to right) OpenBSD, FreeBSD, NetBSD and... MirBSD (wth is that last one?). Nice location after all, as I didn't have to use my legs a lot to get to all interesting spots Wink (oh, there was an exception to that, but more on that later).

Sebastian did a great job organizing the KDE presence, also Adriaan helped out with that, but didn't attend himself.

Sunday was (at least our) big day. It was KOffice day. I started off with giving a rundown on our hell of a lot of interesting stuff in KOffice and what makes it so precious, oh yes, really precious. KOffice is THE future, and that's getting more and more obvious. Integration, low footprint, code quality (which is a key for long-term maintainability!!) building on a good quality high level framework (a.k.a. KDE), and last but not least it's the most complete office suite, providing about twice as many components as OpenOffice.org and MS Office - and only requiring one fifth of lines of code compared to OOo.

How to: Install Google Chrome web browser on Ubuntu Linux (and uninstall Firefox)

Ubuntu comes with a lot of quality software pre-installed. Unfortunately, the default web browser, Mozilla Firefox, has been on the decline -- it is slow and clunky. On Linux, Google Chrome is now the top web browser, and it is the best way to experience Adobe Flash content too (if you still need it). Installing Google Chrome on the Linux-based operating system is not totally straightforward. This is unfortunate, as the search-giant's web browser is an important part of having an overall quality experience on Ubuntu. Don't worry, however, as we will help you to both install the wonderful Google Chrome and uninstall the disappointing Mozilla Firefox. Read more
