Linux (was TEDDS)

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Bill,

what 'flavour' of Linux are you using? I understand there are 'live' CD versions you can boot up with to try without mucking up Windows - have you tried any of these?

To be precise:

OpenOffice.org is distributed and supported by the OpenOffice.org
project. It is BASED on code released into open source by Sun, but is
not affiliated with them any longer.

The applications will read and use MS formats to a point, but the native
format is XML-based.

FWIW, I have decided to "go Linux" on my home PC. Now that I've figured
out how to access a Windows machine remotely using rdesktop
(http://www.rdesktop.org/), I can use Linux for pretty much everything
now. The latest version of KDE (http://www.kde.org) is truly beautiful.

I'll let y'all know how it goes.
