Note- for some strange reason I continue to be on top ranked LibreOffice blogs- maybe because I write more on the software itself than on Oracle politics or coffee spillovers.
LibreOffice Beta 2 is ready and I just installed it on Windows 7 – works nice- and I somehow think open Office and Google needs an example to stop being so scary on cautioning—— hey,hey it’s a beta – (do you see Oracle saying this release is a beta or Windows saying hey this Windows Vista is a beta for Windows 7- No right?)-
see screenshot of solver in LibreOffice spreadsheet -works just fine.
Google also needs to ramp up Google Storage and Google Predict API– but dude are you sure you wanna take on Amazon, Oracle and MS and Yahoo and Apple at the same time. Dear Herr Schmidt- Last German Guy who did that , ended up in a bunker in Berlin. (Ever since I had to pay 50 euros as Airline Transit fee -yes Indian passport holders have to do that in Germany- I am kind of non objective on that issue)
Google Management is busy nowadays thinking of trying to beat Facebook -hint -hint-
-buy out the biggest app makers of Facebook apps and create an api for Facebook info download and upload into Orkut –maybe invest like an angel in that startup called Diaspora http://www.joindiaspora.com/) see-
Back to the topic (and there are enough people blogging on Google should or shouldnt do)
-LibreOffice aesthetically rocks! It has a cool feel.
