Volunteers from The Document Foundation will be taking part at this year's Southern California Linux Festival (SCALE), from February 25th to February 27th at Long Beach, CA.
Representatives of the US community will be showcasing LibreOffice 3.3.1 for Linux, Windows and MacOS for the first time in the US since the launch of the project in September 2010.
LibreOffice is the free office productivity suite developed by the TDF developer community, and is going to be included as the default choice in all Linux desktop distributions announced from March 2011 onwards. The software features a word processor (Writer), a spreadsheet (Calc), a presentation manager (Impress), a charting and graphics program (Draw), and a database front end (Base). The suite supports the ISO standard Open Document Format (ODF) for personal documents, and is compatible with most of the legacy proprietary formats - including several flavors of Microsoft Office, WordPerfect and Microsoft Works - and with the OOXML ISO standard (in the current non-standard Microsoft implementation).
