| OpenOffice development is looking grim as developers flock to LibreOffice |
Apr 23, 2015 - 2:04 PM - by TechSocial |
OpenOffice used to be the best free alternative to Microsoft's Office, but now it seems to be falling on hard times. |
Development on the open-source productivity suite is down to just 16 people, according to a report last month by LWN.net, with 381 changesets over the last year. By comparison, LibreOffice (another open-source Office alternative) saw 22,134 changesets from 268 developers.
A recent draft report (via ExtremeTech) to the Apache Foundation board, which oversees the project, paints a bleaker picture: OpenOffice currently doesn't have a release manager, and is short on mentors that can help new volunteer developers get started. While OpenOffice's support channels remain active, the report admits that new development is practically non-existent.

| Millions of Users Still on Windows XP |
Apr 20, 2015 - 6:19 AM - by Jack1000 |
Found this article interesting, |
Assuming one practices safe-surfing online, has an up-to-date anti-virus, doesn't use IE 8, (The highest MS browser allowed on Windows XP,) maintains a secure encrypted wireless network, perhaps an external Firewall, how safe or at risk, are they with Windows XP?
I think people don't want Windows 8, can't get new Windows 7 anymore, so they feel stuck, in a rut. Or at least XP works fine for them.
Is the community still seeing a lot of XP machines in use?
