There are some excellent time-tracking apps out there, but if you prefer the comfort of good old Microsoft Excel, here’s some good news. A Redditor made an Excel-based to-do list with built-in time tracking, and the template is free to download.

At the end I decided! I want to uninstall OpenOffice on my Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and substitute it with an always updated LibreOffice. After some researches on the web I decide to develop my own procedure to be sure that LibreOffice will be always updated with the last available edition.
First of all it is necessary to remove OpenOffice:
– go to System –> Administration –> Synaptic Package Manager –> Quick Search and type OpenOffice
– Mark for Complete Removal all the installed OpenOffice software and Apply your choice, then exit the program
Now, open Terminal and add the PPA repository:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa
Update the system:
sudo apt-get update Last but not least, go back to Synaptic Package Manager –> Quick Search and type LibreOffice
Select the LibreOffice software and all the add-ons you prefer then Apply your choice.
Since the end of September 2010, a group of German OpenOffice volunteers left definitively the project to join the The Document Foundation and develop a fork version of the famous free productivity platform now controlled by Oracle. After just few months we have LibreOffice: a (more or less) new cross-platform productivity software based on OpenOffice version 3.3 beta. We compared both the free suites and apparently we did not notice particular differences in features and tools. Also the graphic interface is similar between the two platforms and the buttons position is the same. At the moment LibreOffice supports less languages in its Linux and MAC OS X versions and it is not compatible with Solaris based PCs. Both the productivity platforms are able to use the OpenOffice extension library. Consequently, it is clear that it’s too early to notice relevant technical differences between the two competitors but, for sure, something will show off in the next versions. In fact LibreOffice has been created to guarantee a vendor independent office suite which can be developed with no copyright software chunks. The goal is prestigious and we can only say, Good Luck LibreOffice!
