OpenOffice development is looking grim as developers flock to LibreOffice
Apr 23, 2015 - 2:04 PM - by TechSocial
TechSocial's Avatar 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.

Chrome Says Goodbye to NPAPI
Apr 22, 2015 - 12:43 PM - by mpeet611
mpeet611's Avatar Attention all google chrome users. Google chrome is getting ready to say goodbye to npapi plugins. Read this for more information.

http://blog.chromium.org/2013/09/say...end-npapi.html

If you still need to use a npapi plugin in chrome i found a temporary fix that i tried & it works. First go to Chrome://flags & look for enable npapi & click enable. Restart your browser & all your plugins should be working in chrome again.

Here's a guide for the temporary fix above. http://www.ghacks.net/2015/04/15/chr...y-default-now/

Apr 21, 2015 - 10:05 AM - by joe957
If auto update is on, now turn it off. Almost all patches do not have any details about them.

The official list of Windows Update patches was updated over the weekend to show that 34 patches rated "optional" are headed for the Automatic Update chute this Tuesday, April 21.

Makes for a interesting read.

Today at the renewed Windows Hardware Engineering Community (WinHEC) summit in Shenzhen, China, I had the honor of speaking about Windows 10 and the innovation and opportunity it offers our valued partners.

We continue to make great development progress and shared today that Windows 10 will be available this summer in 190 countries and 111 languages.

Thatís why it was particularly fun to show our latest global innovation, Windows Hello

Millions of Users Still on Windows XP
Apr 20, 2015 - 6:19 AM - by Jack1000
Found this article interesting,

http://www.v3.co.uk/v3-uk/news/24029...ns-of-machines

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?
