The CMIS browser in version 4 of LibreOffice is a great example of what we at Alfresco hoped people would do with this standard. It makes it very easy to access your content in Alfresco (or any other CMIS compliant repository) and take advantage of content management features like check-ins and metadata.

For my home firewall and server I used to have an old laptop running Debian. It was a source of geek pride that I had configured by hand all of the necessary services (DHCP, DNS, iptables, Apache, Samba) and knew how everything worked. When that laptop died, I decided I was too lazy to keep ...

As before, Alfresco DevCon 2011 was a great experience. Events were held in both San Diego and London, and I was able to see different presentations at each event. Unfortunately for me, only about half of the presentations were the same between the two events. That means that even after attending both events I still ...

When did it get so hard to buy a Linux computer? From 2004 to 2010, every computer I bought had Linux pre-installed. I purchased from Dell and Lenovo, but HP and Asus also had them on offer. Sure, I had to make compromises, but it was possible.
