oSC successful? Absolutely!

Hi all!

Just a quick note: I'm very proud of the very successful openSUSE conference and wanted to spread that word ;-)

Seriously, the "collaboration across borders" theme has worked out incredibly well. We even have a Red Hat developer with his own Build Service Project now. And I heard whispers about Mageia pondering the use of OBS as well. Awesome!

I know, I know, we didn't fork any big projects - well, actually, we had the first LibreOffice conference tracks there - it's becoming a real open source project, finally. Getting rid of pesky code attribution stuff has taken down a huge barrier. (meanwhile OpenOffice keeps crashing on my laptop. Which is OK, I used KPresenter for my presentation - too bad Beta 2 introduced the audience to ODF tags in the slides hehe)

Love, Jos

    Hey, happy to see that your enjoy KPresenter.
    Even if we talked about this at the last aKademy, it's a pleasure to read this. I really hope the next version of KOffice will be end-user ready...

  2. I used KPresenter in my first talk too with no problems or ODF tag intrusions. I needed to use the Appear effect in my second talk due to the volume of text so I used LO for that).


Say something smart and be polite please!
