other alternative to M$ office

- Free from IBM,

- support ODF

- available in linux or windows, but in macos(?)

now, trying....

the true owners....

"SCO claims it owns all copyrights over Unix and that Linux infringes on those copyrights. In what were widely seen as bet-the-company moves, SCO, beginning in 2003, launched a series of lawsuits against rivals and customers claiming their use of Linux was violating the copyrights. The campaign was dealt a crushing blow on Aug. 10 when federal court Judge Dale Kimball ruled that Novell (NOVL), and not SCO, owns the copyrights to Unix."

Hooray, it should end the 'threatening' era from SCO (M$) to the linux worlds!

good or bad???

Run Solaris in M$ Windows virtualization, run M$ Windows on Solaris virtualization, and run M$ Windows on Sun servers?

good news or bad news?

I am not a M$ hater, but I just wanna use software for free and legally.

long battle SCO (M$) and Linux

It's remind me a few years ago, on 2004 to be exact. many people were attracted to sit for Microsoft training, including me. I felt that it would be the end of free linux. However, Linux becomes strong and strong nowadays. It could compete with Windows and MacOS.

Does my MCSA useless, now? I don't think so, it is still useful, helping me to learn linux and think of creating GUI based configurator such as in M$ world.

a week preparation to the seminar on last Tuesday and another assignment due last week, made me really tired.

careers = no time for family? I like to be a family man, but it's not that easy as saying it.
