OpenOffice4Kids (OOo4Kids) - What has changed?

Filed under
OOo

It's been about a year and a half since I have last reviewed OpenOffice4Kids (OOo4Kids), which is a special version of OpenOffice for children aged 6-12 more or less, tweaked to look and behave. I loved the concept very much, mostly because it offered something that pretty much no other suite does; it offered visual simplicity.

OOo4Kids had very few buttons in its GUI, which is commendable, since most people can hardly use them. But if the idea works for kids, why not adults? Still, we're here to talk about OOo4Kids. Version 0.6 was ok, but it was mostly the Writer that has undergone polish, other elements of the suite suffering from some rather odd choices. Now, the software has grown to version 1.2. Let's see what it can do.

Open source laptops – ones not running any commercial software whatsoever – have been the holy grail for free software fans for years. Now, with the introduction of libreboot, a truly open source boot firmware, the dream is close to fruition. The $730 laptop is a bog standard piece of hardware but it contains only open source software. The OS, Debian, is completely open source and to avoid closed software the company has added an Atheros Wi-Fi dongle with open source drivers rather than use the built-in Wi-Fi chip. Read more
