Our great sponsors
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels
  • GitHub repo winapps

    Run Windows apps such as Microsoft Office/Adobe in Linux (Ubuntu/Fedora) and GNOME/KDE as if they were a part of the native OS, including Nautilus integration.

    If your complaint is that you're locked into the Office ecosystem because you don't want to learn how to script/improve LO or because you have to work with files that only open in MS Office but still want to use Linux, then there's barely anything LO can ever reasonably do for you. You can just run Office 2016 or 365 on Linux via Wine, or use winapps to run modern Office through virtualization.
