Microsoft Office 2008 options

While open office is the way to go, or neooffice for the Mac. Microsoft 2008 Office users should look at: http://www.maclife.com/article/tip_day/office_2008_filecompatibility_tro...

That might save your form data.

Sourforge links of the day

Terms used at Open Solaris

http://opensolaris.org/os/community/on/os_dev_process/#glossary is a good list of terms from open solaris group.

Google Chrome

Since it is open source, we can get the code. To start look at: http://dev.chromium.org/developers/how-tos/getting-started is a link for developers.

It is for Windows only for now. The have an plug in for Visual Studio. It would be nice to have an eclipse section.

These commands will get it via the command line interface:
wget http://build.chromium.org/buildbot/archives/chromium.tgz
wget http://build.chromium.org/buildbot/archives/depot_tools_win.zip

The source code is 437 M. The depot tools is much smaller.

Google Chrome announced. Another browser choice

Google Chrome Comic is really a comic strip about the new browser call Chrome.

For now http://www.google.com/chrome is the supposed home for this site. It gives a file not found. So, they still have more releasing to do!

Based on webkit as well as other open source projects. At the end of the comic Google seems to be taking a jab at Microsoft. They certainly could have created a closed and proprietary new browser. While never mentioning Microsoft by name, what other browser is proprietary? None that I can think off.

If they can make money off of open source projects, Microsoft should find out how. Also, they should port Developers Studio over to the Mac.

Chrome will be coming soon!
