Great Expectations for Linux in 2013

Filed under
Linux

Well another holiday season has come and gone, leaving more than a few jangled nerves and expanded waistlines in its wake.

Holiday pressures are bad enough by themselves, of course, but Canonical's splashy and yet profoundly confusing Wednesday announcement so soon afterward hasn't exactly helped.

Yes, it's Ubuntu for phones, but it isn't the same as the Ubuntu for Android you've been expecting for almost a year! Sure, makes perfect sense!

Oof, it's going to take more than a few triple Tequila Tux cocktails to bring back Linux Girl's hitherto cheerful post-holiday mood.

What May Come

Anyhoo, leaving all that Ubuntu wackiness aside for the moment -- Linux Girl knows she can't avoid discussing it, but will save it for another day -- it's time to look at the big picture.

This is the start of a momentous new year, after all, and as such Linux bloggers -- like so many others around the world -- have been forming their hopes for what may come over the next 12 months.

Ready for an obfuscation-free look at the future? Then relax, sit back and read on.

Among all the university, National Chi-Nan University (NCNU) is the earliest one, which started migrating LibreOffice since 2014 and has been working on it for three years. Then on April 20, 2017, a student from NCNU posted an article on Dcard forum saying that, according to her teacher, NCNU “Will not use Microsoft Office anymore due to the budget issue. LibreOffice will be used to replace Microsoft Office.” The student strongly questioned, “LibreOffice is totally unknown to everyone. I don’t know what the administrative staffs of our school are thinking about. Microsoft’s software is a very basic skill for enterprises to recruit people. This decision will make students lost their core competitiveness.” Read more
