Along with countless other super-nerds around the world, this young computer science student at the University of Helsinki had been working on a most excellent new operating system. It had been dubbed Linux (after Linus's Minix, as it was based on the Minix operating system, itself a spin-off from the Unix OS that sought to provide a stable UNIX platform for PCs).

OpenDocument office suites lack formula compatibility

  • Story Type: News Story
Since the OpenDocument standard for office files covers spreadsheets, the productivity suites based on it, such as (OOo) and KOffice, can share spreadsheets between applications -- theoretically, that is.
