Three Magnifiques Extensions to Sweeten Your Office Suite

LibO
OOo

Over the weekend, LibreOffice took the Experiment award for most appreciated software at the Open World Forum in Paris. I use LibreOffice every day, so I definitely think the award is well-deserved. Although I use some extensions, LibreOffice (and OpenOffice) have a collection of add-ons that I haven't even explored yet. Here are three particularly useful add-ons to improve your office tools:

Oracle PDF Extension: This handy extension allows you to open and edit PDF files within LibreOffice or OpenOffice. If there's a better, non-Adobe PDF editor, I haven't found it yet (but feel free to leave comments with your recommendations).

  • China builds world’s fastest supercomputer without U.S. chips
    China on Monday revealed its latest supercomputer, a monolithic system with 10.65 million compute cores built entirely with Chinese microprocessors. This follows a U.S. government decision last year to deny China access to Intel's fastest microprocessors. There is no U.S.-made system that comes close to the performance of China's new system, the Sunway TaihuLight. Its theoretical peak performance is 124.5 petaflops, according to the latest biannual release today of the world's Top500 supercomputers. It is the first system to exceed 100 petaflops. A petaflop equals one thousand trillion (one quadrillion) sustained floating-point operations per second. The most important thing about Sunway TaihuLight may be its microprocessors. In the past, China has relied heavily on U.S. microprocessors in building its supercomputing capacity. The world's next fastest system, China's Tianhe-2, which has a peak performance of 54.9 petaflops, uses Intel Xeon processors.

  • It's official: Kondik is gone from the Cyanogen that bore his handle [Ed: Microsoft deal killed them. As usual.]
    STEVE KONDIK, the original founder of Cyanogen, has been officially ousted from the company following the closure of its Seattle base. As reported yesterday, Kondik told developers that he "f*cked up and was f*cked over" and that he was considering what to do next given that he had lost control of rights to the Cyanogen name when he and his co-founder had moved from developer group to business. Kondik, aka CyanogenMod, relinquished all control over the operation of the business taking on the moniker of chief science officer, which may or may not have been a simple honorific.
