Subject: [ug-nycosug] August NYC OpenSolaris User Group meeting - OpenOffice.org talk
To: "ug-nycosug@opensolaris.org" <ug-nycosug@opensolaris.org>

Hello everyone,

{Please feel free to forward this invite to other interested OS/platform groups - as this event will cover a topic/project that has a much wider scope then the OS itself}

As previously announced, the New York {Open}Solaris Community User Group will be holding its August meeting on our regular last Thursday of the month on 8/27/2009

At this meeting, we will be joined by Elizabeth Matthis, a linguist and a long-time contributor to the OpenOffice.org team.    Elizabeth (Liz) has been with the original product team that had been acquired by Sun (i.e. the product that became StarOffice and had later been opensourced under the OpenOffice project umbrella). She will give us an update on what's happening in the OpenOffice community space, what she's been working on in terms of improving the  user experience and what Project Renaissance is all about. She has been a member of the StarOffice/OpenOffice.org engineering team in Germany for the past 10+ years and continues to be an active contributor to the OpenOffice.org productivity suite. She is here on vacation and has flown in from Germany where she resides; Liz has agreed to come talk to the NY audience while she's here!

OpenOffice is a free open source productivity suite that is compatible with Microsoft Office but runs on many more platforms, including MacOS, various Linux distributions, Solaris, etc. More details about OpenOffice can be seen at OpenOffice.org

We will also be giving out OpenSolaris 2009.06 media, swag and raffle off 2 "Pro OpenSolaris" books that have been signed by their authors.

[Please RSVP by 8/26, so we have an approximate count and your name is registered with the building's security in the lobby]

We'll get started with refreshments @ 6:00pm.
