Thanks, Mike. Was curious about how that was coming along.

Linux Applications & Android apps / Re: Softmaker Office 2018 beta for Linux - free

In my experience, no. It seems to depend on the document though. Sometimes LibreOffice is best, sometimes WPS, sometimes Textmaker. Libreoffice has improved a lot in that regard since I became a Linux user.

I would say that so far, I don't see any improvements in them over the 2016 versions.

Sorry, to clarify, I meant is the conversion any better than LibreOffice or about the same?

No problem. It looks like they use their own desktop which was a fork of KDE 3. So those nostalgic for the early days of KDE might really enjoy it. I plan on giving it a spin.

Entertainment / Neil Young concert on Chex & CTV Sunday 9 pm

Neil's concert from last Friday, in Omemee, is going to be re-broadcast on Chex TV and CTV at 9 pm this Sunday.

I have got my notebook computer setup with my usb OTA (over the air) TV Tuner dongle, and TV rabbit ear antenna, to receive the HD digital TV signal, and record it to my notebook hard drive. :-)

Yes, this looks worth trying the Live version, on a usb flash drive.
I see there is also a download for the Raspberry PI! :-)

Thanks for posting, about this Distro, Jason!

Reading through some articles saved in Pocket and found this from the end of October about Q4OS.

https://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/10/30/q4os_distro_review/

Has anybody tried this?

Yep, I've been testing it this week. Interface is much nicer than the older version, but like every other MS-compatible Linux office suite, the translations aren't perfect.

Are the translations to/from DOCX format about the same, or better?
