LibreOffice Goes Online with 5.3 Release   

The Document Foundation announced the release of LibreOffice version 5.3. The latest version is available for macOS, Windows, and Linux. This release has many new features, including an experimental ribbon-like interface reminiscent of Microsoft Word.

One of the biggest highlights of the new release is the source code for LibreOffice Online. Users can now install LibreOffice Online on their servers and use file sync and storage services like NextCloud to create an experience similar to Google Docs and Office 365.

Although the source code is available for download, the Document Foundation has no plans to offer LibreOffice Online as a service. Italo Vignoli, a co-founder of the Document Foundation, told us that the foundation doesn't have the resources to build a Google-like infrastructure to offer such as service. LibreOffice Online is intended for ISPs and private cloud vendors.

How to tell if you are infected with malware   

Picture this: you start your computer and wait. And wait. And wait some more. When your desktop finally shows its face, things don't get any better. Your Internet is sluggish, your programs are taking forever to load, and your cursor is dragging 20 seconds behind your mouse. You might have tried to open too many programs at once. Or...

You might be infected.

Sometimes a malware infection is plain as day. Other times it's a silent killer. If you want to know whether or not your machine is sick, you first need to understand the symptoms. So let's take a look at the telltale signs.

Celebrate Safer Internet Day   

Safer Internet Day is an awareness-raising campaign that started in Europe more than a decade ago. Hosted by ConnectSafely.org, Safer Internet Day gained official recognition in the US in late 2012, with a joint agreement between the Department of Homeland Security and the European Commission to work together to build a better Internet for young people. Now, it is celebrated in more than 100 countries worldwide.

The theme for this year's Safer Internet Day celebration is "Be the change: Unite for a better Internet." Organizers are looking for people to post about positive social actions online whether it's a random act of kindness or a full-on flash mob. Here are some ways you can participate:

The best Linux graphic design software.   

Linux has no dearth of graphic design software. In this list, we'll see the best Linux graphic design software.

It is not true that Linux does not offer tools for digital artists. Of course, there's something for everyone which makes Linux better than Windows.

There are plenty of Linux graphic applications which help digital artists enhance their work or build something interesting from scratch. Well, maybe, the applications that do exist with Linux are not commercially popular, but they do offer powerful features to act as a perfect companion for a digital artist.

In this article, we would be specifically concentrating our focus on the tools that deal with digital drawings/sketches and image editors.

Libreoffice 5.3 released   

LibreOffice 5.3 has been released today and The Document Foundation (the organization behind LibreOffice) has called it the "most feature-rich releases in the history of the application".

It's not bragging. LibreOffice 5.3 does boast of a number of new features to it, most important of them all, its own version of MS Office's Ribbon interface.

In case, you didn't know already, LibreOffice is a free and open source productivity suite available for Windows, Linux and MacOS. While you have to pay a huge amount of licensing fee for Microsoft Office, LibreOffice is completely free to use on any platform.

Why use linux ?   

It's a new website called Why Use Linux. Basically, it's a web page (in progress) that lists the benefits of using Linux, shows the available applications for general computing usage and recommends a few Linux distributions to try.

It's still in beta, which means I will be adding more features and changes to it. Meanwhile, if you have any suggestions related to features, designs or even grammatical errors, please let me know. Together we can make it the ideal website you can refer to encourage people to use Linux.
