I'm new to the forum and would love to have a good understanding of the types of projects women are working on using Ubuntu! I just started working at System76 and have spoken with some customers working on some unique projects. I was amazed at the range of capabilities the software can achieve. What are some of you guys working on? What other forums are you a part of? I look forward to getting to know you guys!

I started a comic book using Libre Office. I came from Publisher by Microsoft. I am getting used to the format and the placement of the tools, but overall I'm finding it to be an easy switch. One little blah moment that I've had is when I try to move objects and I can't use the arrow keys to move the object over a tiny distance. It has an auto-distance in mind which seems to be too far every time I move. Other than that, I love Libre Office so far!

The coolest thing I've done with Linux has been a CAD/CAM weaving program called ArahWeave (http://www.arahne.si/). Anyone interested in handweaving and especially writing one's own drafts would be intrigued. Although written for jacquard and dobby loom weaving, it can be adapted for handlooms as well.
