    Well most people wouldn't need to read highlty formatted word documents. That is even for people who use Word a lot for publishing in academic journals, I know that because I work with such people. LO is completely adequate for what they do, but there is an inertia because faculties get MSO practically free (of course the Uni pays MS out of another stash) If they have to pay out of their own pockets I think there will be a lot more conversions.

    I just opened a flyer I use for business in LO 4.2.3.3 and it looks like ****. In KSO it needed a bit tweaking but is usable.

    Just did another XP replacement on an old Compaq. Just needed an nVidia 6200 board and Xubuntu with KingSoft Office.

    So you made the flyer yourself? Since it is for your business you have a choice for its format and the tool you create it with. Why did you make in MSO? Also I suppose a flyer should not change so why not make it in odf and export to pdf?

    Re: Say Goodbye to Windows XP - StartUbuntu Project

    Hi to Everybody!

    I'm frequently using at home Lubuntu 13.10 from the last november, installed on a 1999 computer (so, from the last century!!) with 676mb ram, a Pentium 4 (Willamette, 1,6ghz) and a nvidia riva tnt2 graphic card.... the computer has come to me as 'potential trash' from a customer of mine, it had Windows XP (and previously Win 98) and with this configuration it was unusable: now I can even see Youtube video (not in full screen, obviously) and I'm quite proud of this installation... With XP it was impossible to use it for web surfing or even to run something else than Wordpad! Now Libreoffice runs quite well... From that experience I've then installed Lubuntu also on other, more recent machines: for me actually is the best OS since it doesn't change too much the way to work and it allows a gradual approach to Linux...

    just wondering: are you using the default "nouveau" driver? Works fine withs TNT2? If yes, lucky you! And a pity that the TNT2 is better than a Geforce2 to 4 whose display is broken on Lubuntu 13.10 ( http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2168979 which refer to the bug with Nouveau drivers: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=51477 )

    14.04 is almost here and the French police will be converting 70000 computers to it from XP.

    Interesting

    I wonder about the hardware specs of those computers, how many of them that actually will run well with standard Ubuntu. Or if it will be some tailor-made Ubuntu.

    Looks like KSO is getting pushed
    Shortened urls: See point #11 here. And clicking on them could be risky.
