I was looking in my ISO folder and I realized that yesterday was an
One year and one day ago, I created the "first" LibreOffice North
American Community DVD .iso file. That was for LO 3.3.3.
Today, I created an updated 3.5.4 .iso file for my use. Next week will
One year of making and handing out NA-DVDs to the local community. I do
not know how many 100's of DVD I have made in that year's time. I do
not remember all the business, government offices, and individuals that
I have given a copy of the DVDs to.
LibreOffice has grown a lot since then. So has the NA-DVD. Much of the
DVD has not changed much, except the theme, the extensions, templates,
and other files that are listed in its pages. Old version have been
updated, if available. New items added. My, KPP English dictionaries
were developed for LO [and OOo/AOO]. And other thing, good and bad, has
happened during this past year that has changed the project and myself.
The LibreOffice project is coming up on its 2 year anniversary. During
that time, OOo has been dropped my Oracle and picked up by Apache and
I started with LO back in its 3.3.0 beta days and dropped OOo then and
there. I started working on the idea of a DVD to hand out to friends,
family, and business people I knew when LO went to 3.3.1. Then that
idea developed into the North American Community DVD Project. Back
then, the hope was to put out an English version, A Spanish version, and
a French version. Well, at least the English project went ahead. I do
not speak or read any other "human language". I can only deal with
English [human] and programming languages [computer].
I hope that the next year will see a growth in the NA-DVD project and at
least 10 times as many users using LibreOffice.
Let us all make the next year be a great year for LibreOffice and all of
the regional projects for marketing and distribution of LO to their users.
