"The Document Foundation is getting a big boost today, thanks in part to silicon vendor AMD.

AMD is now a member of The Document Foundation's Advisory Board and is helping the open source group improve the LibreOffice Calc spreadsheet program. The improvement will be the biggest overhaul of the open source spreadsheet since LibreOffice split from the Oracle/Sun led OpenOffice in 2010.

"There is lots and lots of core refactoring now being done in Calc," Michael Meeks, Distinguished Engineer at Suse, told Datamation.

Some of that work will land in the upcoming LibreOffice 4.1 release, though much of the improvement will be longer term that will benefit future releases in LibreOffice 4.2 and beyond"

After Intel accelerating the Internet, AMD accelerates the Office work. Nice.

Christine Albanel, a former french minister of Culture, will be pleased to hear that her firewall is now accelerated (national joke).

When any government, or any church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, "This you may not read, this you must not see, this you are forbidden to know," the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives.

From the French Government's Plan To Help Book Publishers Adapt article:

Citer
The letter makes it clear that IP enforcement is seen as the only way to distribute value to authors and distributors (consumers are not mentioned).

That's what they want you to believe, but it's bullshit. In reality, so-called IP enforcement grossly enriches the distributors (corporations), not the authors and artists. There's a TechDirt article about India's pharmaceutical industry using "unfair" patent practices. Quoting from the article:

Citer
It's the sort of doublespeak frequently deployed by IP-reliant industries in the US in their attempt to force the world to align their laws with ours. The argument always seems to be for more "protection," even if foreign industries are thriving without it.

There were attempts to explain this but most of our "congresmen" were ordered to close any discussion that didn't follow the line fixed by lobbies and our former president.

It was pathetic to see artists explain on TV that sharing was stealing their money ("a baguette" they used). They should had get their money back from their editing company first.
