Kolab Now Is a Smooth On-Ramp for LibreOffice Online

TuxMachines - 57 min 40 sec ago

As cloud popularity grows, so does the collection of free or low-cost online office tools that services like Microsoft Office Online and Google Docs/G Suite provide.

However, those two major league offerings, along with a swarm of other cloud-based productivity platforms, are proprietary. Open source vendors have been promising a free open source online alternative. Until now, online open source office suites have been little more than vaporware.

You can get your document work done fine using an open source local installation. Exchanging documents via email attachments or shared links to files stored on Dropbox and other cloud storage farms work reasonably well for low-level collaborative team tasks.

However, the inconvenience factor kicks in very quickly when you try to handle collaborative tasks and need access to a continual stream of live edits. That is when a cloud-based open source office suite is sorely missed.

Kolab Systems last month announced Kolab Now, a full-featured online office suite. The launch had the blessing of The Document Foundation, which gave up on fulfilling promises for a free open source online version of the LibreOffice suite it sponsors.

Scrivner (writing/programming/html tool) alternative.

Reddit - 1 hour 50 min ago

OK, I am making the full shift over to Linux (mint atm, but I intend to lose myself down this rabbit hole). Writing is the last hold out, and I am stuck on my phone waiting for the typhoon to pass. So I started to analyze what I am really wanting from writing tools.

My heaviest, best writing is done on notepad+. It's clean and simple. I like it.

All I want in addition is the ability to link documents. Like an old school, text only, web page. So I create a front page, and links to subsidiary documents.

I know exactly what i want. I can even set it up fairly easily, but I don't want to reinvent the wheel. I have done web pages like this in the past, but I don't remember how. :D

Oh, I would prefer to interact with it like a web page, but edit any text by clicking on them. This way I can read it, organize it, and edit quickly.

Libre office seems to have something like this but it's over complicated and noisy. Even Scrivner was pretty noisy.

If I am writing I don't need to think about editing /formatting.

Recommendations?

Linux Laptop for Coding

Reddit - Wed, 2017-08-23 23:54

In a couple months, I'll be starting a coding boot camp. A laptop is required, so I've been shopping for something inexpensive, preferably Linux-run. The System 76 laptops, while not inexpensive, look good to me. But then again, I know absolutely nothing about Linux.

My budget is <$1000 Canadian (I live in Montreal, QC).

If anyone has any suggestions for a laptop that meets the requirements listed below, I would very much appreciate the input.

OS Ideal: OS X Acceptable: Linux (Mint or Ubuntu) No good: Windows

RAM Ideal: >= 8GB Acceptable: 4-8GB No good: < 4GB

Age Ideal: < 1 year old Acceptable: 1-3 years old No good: > 3 years old

Screen Size Ideal: 15 inches Acceptable: 11-13 inches No good: < 11 inches
