Linux Desktop 10 to offer better MS Office, OpenOffice integration

SAN DIEGO -- Novell plans to release a beta for its Linux Desktop 10 including new features offering better interoperability with Microsoft Office and Open Office, said Ted Haeger, Novell Inc.'s director of user communities, at the Southern California Linux Expo (SCALE). The beta, tentatively scheduled for release next month, will include a new feature, dubbed Xgl. Haeger said Xgl will allow users to jump between screens and multiple desktops.

Scary Scenario: Oracle leveraged into dominant OSS position with Sendmail, Apache, Linux, etc.



Major media and the public seem to have missed one of the biggest plays in the history of Linux and the Open Source Software community with Oracle's purchase of SleepCat software.

Who would have imagined such a strategic move? If Microsoft had thought of this, we'd be starting over from scratch on a new OS. They would own the Internet.

Will Oracle, a proprietary database company, shutdown these major applications, give them to Sun or use them to take control of everyone?

From the reports I'm reading, major media hasn't got it yet. But you should.

Linux is cool in this Penguin-powered ice cream maker

  • Network World; By Phil Hochmuth (Posted by dcparris on Feb 15, 2006 8:00 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story
At last week's Demo conference, a showcase of all things edgy, techie and gadgetey, saw the debut of what I am willing to bet is the first Linux-powered automatic ice-cream making machine. The MooBella Ice Cream System is a vending-machine-sized device (kind of a cross between a fridge and a coke machine) that can almost instantly create a scoop of ice cream in a variety of flavors, with or without nuts, crushed cookies or candy.

[Ed: This does sound like the perfect job for a penguin! Can't wait to see one of these gadgets! - dcparris]
