    SoftMaker FreeOffice 2021 Now Available to Download
    Softmaker FreeOffice 2021 is now available to download. As with previous versions of this free (but not open source) alternative to Microsoft Office, the full suite of apps is available across Windows, macOS, and Linux with no feature limitations or patchy coverage. While SoftMaker says this is a “completely revised version” that is “seamlessly compatible with Microsoft Office” file formats, both new and old, it’s hard to know what’s new in FreeOffice 2021 specifically as there’s no official change-log detailing the changes between this and the previous FreeOffice release. That said, SoftMaker do mention a couple of highlights — just […] This post, SoftMaker FreeOffice 2021 Now Available to Download is from OMG! Ubuntu!.

    Ubuntu 22.04 LTS Codename Revealed
    The codename for next year’s Ubuntu 22.04 LTS release has been revealed as ‘Jammy Jellyfish’. The new name was posted on Launchpad, home of Ubuntu development, as is tradition. But what does the codename tell us? Can we glean anything from this mercurially minded moniker? The word ‘jammy’ is used informally in the UK to mean very lucky or very good Jammy is an interesting adjective. Broadly speaking it means to be filled with jam (what American’s call jelly) or something that has the consistency of jam. But the word ‘jammy’ is also used informally in the UK to mean […] This post, Ubuntu 22.04 LTS Codename Revealed is from OMG! Ubuntu!. Do not reproduce elsewhere without permission. …

    Annotator is a Slick Image Markup Tool for Linux Desktops
    Sometimes I want to annotate an image quickly, but without loading up a full-blown image editing app like The GIMP. Today I found an amazing app that lets me do just that. Annotator by Trevor Williams is something of a cross between the macOS Preview app (which has powerful markup tools built-in) and FOSS-fave Shutter. Indeed, until now, my go-to tool for annotating images on Linux is Shutter (or Flameshot, though it can only annotate screenshots you take using it), though its UI is a little dated and a few features are missing. So when I saw Annotator on the […] This post, Annotator is a Slick Image Markup Tool for Linux Desktops is from OMG! Ubuntu!. Do not reproduce elsewhere without permission. …

    How GNOME 42 Lights the Way with New ‘Dark Mode’ Preference
    GNOME 42 is on course to ship with support for a proper ‘dark mode’ toggle. Right now Linux desktops lack a standardised, system-level way for users to indicate to the system, its apps, and even the websites they visit that they’d prefer them to use a dark appearance. Now, you’re probably thinking: “Joey, Ubuntu already has a dark mode: I use it” — and you’re not mistaken. Major desktop Linux distros, including Ubuntu and Pop!_OS, do include a dark theme option. But changing GTK theme the best way to approach this? Not at all. First off, GTK themes aren’t a […] This post, How GNOME 42 Lights the Way with New ‘Dark Mode’ Preference is from OMG! Ubuntu!.

    Microsoft Office 2021 Includes Better Support for LibreOffice Files
    We’re used to hearing that the latest versions of out favourite open-source office suites come with better support for Microsoft Office files, but the other way around? That’s a little less common, but it’s happening. Microsoft Office 2021 is due for release on October 5 for Windows and macOS systems. Among the (many) new features Microsoft is talking about is Office 2021’s support for the OpenDocument Format (ODF) 1.3. “The ODF 1.3 format (using the file extensions .odt, .ods, and .odp) is supported in Word, Excel, and PowerPoint alongside the Office Open XML (OOXML) format (which uses file extensions .docx, […] This post, Microsoft Office 2021 Includes Better Support for LibreOffice Files is from OMG!
