The first day of the conference i've given a talk about LibreOffice. LibreOffice is one of the most important points for Turkey. LibreOffice is an important step for spreading of free softwares. Because this office suit can run on GNU/Linux, MacOs, and Windows. LibreOffice will take an important role in the migration to free operating systems.
There was no active work on LibreOffice in Turkey until recently. Now there is a team in my University who works for LibreOffice. We are studying to learn LibreOffice, fixing the bugs and spreading our work and LibreOffice by blog posts and other social media tools. Thanks to Necdet Yücel for advising us in this process and thanks to helpfull LibreOffice development team.
You can access my presentation from here. My presentation includes following parts:
- Libreoffice history
- Why we should use LibreOffice in public?
LibreOffice Turkish translation rate is 100% and this is the most important necessity if we want to spread LibreOffice in Turkey. (Thanks to Turkish translation team)
No licence fee. I tried to explain this part very carefully. Because nothing should take precedence over LibreOffice is a free software. LibreOffice needs money to continue too.
LibreOffice is improved enough to cover the needs and changable according to neccessaries.
- How to support LibreOffice. How to continue LibreOffice project?
- Which countries migrated to LibreOffice?
- What are we doing for LibreOffice in Turkey
We are planning to participate next years conference as libreoffice developers.
