I do not yet see the functionality in Google Drive. In the "new" layout, there is no option to open an
.odt, .ods, .odp file with the Google products Docs, Sheets, Slides. In the "old" layout of Google Drive, I can open the file, but it makes a copy of the file rather than editing the ODF based file. So it looks like I would not be able to edit the same file with the Google tools, then move to a laptop and use LibreOffice on the same file via Google Drive.
In place ODF editing not there yet for me...
Thanks for the education. I had no idea. I thought it was OK because it's planned for FireFox 3.1.
I'm wondering if it will support the HTML5 stuff for Ogg Theora and Ogg Vorbis natively without any need for plugins.
Actually IBM gives Symphony away without charge... http://symphony.lotus.com/software/lotus/symphony/home.nsf/products

This is world's largest virtual desktop deployment and probably also the world's largest Linux deployment, and seems to have been selected over OLPC by Brazil. Definitely a moment to celebrate — and just in time for Brazilian Carnival which starts tomorrow!"
Look a bit closer at the picture, the right shift key is on the right side of the "up" cursor key.
questro writes: I am a registered democrat with plans to vote for Barack Obama this fall and I am saddened to see that the Democratic convention intends to use restrictive technology that will exclude me and many others from viewing the online content of the convention. I have recently read of plans by Aaron Myers, the DNCC's director of online communications, to use a proprietary Microsoft product called "Silverlight" for video streaming. The article can be found at this URL: http://www.pcworld.com/article/id,146806-page,3-c,webservices/article.html# This technology will purposefully EXCLUDE millions of democrats and others who choose to use the free and open source GNU/Linux operating system. "Silverlight" is not compatible with GNU/Linux and is only available for Win32 or Mac. While Microsoft touts a product called "Moonlight" for GNU/Linux, it is not the same technology and contains a restrictive license that is incompatible with many GNU/Linux distributions. This is by Microsoft's design. Even Senator Obama understands the value of using the free and open source GNU/Linux system as evidenced by the fact that www.barackobama.com is hosted by a Linux system according to Netcraft. http://uptime.netcraft.com/up/graph?site=www.barackobama.com I urge the Democratic Party to reconsider this technology choice before millions of citizens are excluded.
