7 of the Best Free Linux Document Processors

,----[ Quote ]
| A document processor is a document 
| preparation system. Unlike a word processor, 
| this type of application leads the author to 
| concentrate on the structure of the document 
| rather than its appearance. The author 
| therefore focuses on what he/she wants to 
| say, instead of fretting over page borders, 
| font attributes, or formatting. Moreover, 
| the author will be guided in the 
| organisation, structure, and flow within the 
| document.
| The software featured in this article all 
| produce high quality professional documents. 
| The majority of them rely on LaTeX as their 
| rendering engine. LaTeX is a distinguished 
| typesetting system which is designed for the 
| production of scientific and technical 
| documentation. It employs beautifully 
| crafted typesetting algorithms. Academic 
| journals will often accept submission in 
| this format.

| Linux, the latest betas of its Chrome

| According to the developers, Chrome on both 
| platforms features stability improvements to 
| plug-ins, such the Adobe Flash Player, and 
| is now even more reliable.

Linux super-duper admin tools: OProfile 

,----[ Quote ]
| OProfile is a very handy, useful tool. In 
| the hands of a smart system administrator, 
| it can be used to detect application 
| slowness problems, analyze system 
| bottlenecks, optimize system performance and 
| utilization, and resolve resource/usage 
| conflicts. Combined with a range of other 
| admin programs, some of which we've talked 
| about and others we are yet to see, OProfile 
| is a must-have item on the system debugging 
| checklist. 



Industry Heavy-Hitters Swing into Linux Word Processing

,----[ Quote ]
| For its part, Moblin is not an office suite but an entire software
| environment, specifically tailored to netbooks and other embedded devices.
| Over the past few months, both Novell and Phoenix Technologies have issued
| promising announcements around Moblin.


If You Pay for a Linux Word Processor, Is It Really Worth the Price?

,----[ Quote ]
| Meanwhile, industry heavy-hitters Sun Microsystems, Novell, and IBM Lotus
| keep building on their Linux heritages with new releases of distinctive
| commercial word processors. So, too, does, ThinkFree, an innovative
| California-based start-up that's just added ThinkFree Mobile Netbook to its
| growing line-up of crossplatform suites. Haansoft, a South Korean distributor
| of Linux OS and word processing software, just so happens to hold a majority
| interest in ThinkFree.
