PostPosted: Sat 14 Jul 2012, 13:41    Post_subject: Offering of WP in Puppy by its distro contributors  

Both Playdayz and 01Micko have made contributions in this area in such a way as to address a mainstream office need with a stable product integrated into the distro's desktop. These are OOTB solutions for community use. Understandably, individual package offering are a mere micro-second opening, but, the office solutions are enormously valuable, stable, and handle fidelity for most all of the extensions used in the office world.

01Micko

TaZoC
For 64bit systems, TaZoC's distro contains both the standard Puppy office offering while ALSO providing the stable Office Solution as well.

Hope this is useful

I posted a bug with AbiWord here-
http://bugzilla.abisource.com/show_bug.cgi?id=13372

Apparently, they don't recommend distributing any version later than 2.8.6

Quote:
Nor should they ship any 2.9.

2.8.6 is the LAST stable release. Anything in 2.9 series is development,
therefor full of bugs. Don't be like Ubuntu.
