A key suite of software many people require when using a computer is word processing, spreadsheet, database and presentation software. The first cross platform one that comes to my mind as a solid alternative to commercial offerings is Libre Office though I don’t know what the state of The Document Foundation vs. Apache Foundation OpenOffice incubation might be to bring the OpenOffice name back to this excellent software product.

P.S. As a reminder, our 4th Sunday meeting at Bobby G’s is this Sunday, April 22nd. I hope you can join us. As we skipped the 2nd Sunday due to Easter it’s been quite awhile.
