Microsoft Office Native on Linux? Really?

Phoronixx is reporting that in addition to Android, Linux Desktop operating systems, may be seeing a native version of Microsoft Office as early as 2014.

After emerging over the last few years, Linux has become a commonly used program. It is especially successful in the financial field, where the need for extremely quick servers is huge.

Nodes functioning properly


Well, after an upgrade to our hosted server I have finally found my way back to Linuxphile to make sure all is functioning.

I'm hoping to find some time in the near future to add content.

Google Documents


I have several laptop and desktop computers. Depending on where I am and how well prepared I am I could be working on any of the three laptops I own, or on my father's desktop, my brother's laptop, etc. Having these varied machines to work with has necessitated a review of how I author documents.
