A slightly dated presentation (2008) done to show how Open source software can be used for task around home. Main task are a greeting card, a picture slideshow, a checkbook, a poster or newsletter. KOffice is now Calligra Suite. OpenOffice and LibraOffice are similar. Many other slideshow / photo management options are available now. Gimp main menu has changed File -> Create -> Logos instead of Xtns -> Logos.
