    Default LibreOffice Getting Better Multi-Threaded Goodness

    Phoronix: LibreOffice Getting Better Multi-Threaded Goodness

    LibreOffice has been exciting to talk about recently with the landing of GPU/OpenCL calculation support and an OpenGL canvas plus many other features forthcoming in LibreOffice 4.2. The latest work underway is on working out multi-threaded importing for Calc...

    This is all heartwarming, but it baffles me that people are spending time for fancy features while Open/LibreOffice still doesn't manage to save documents without randomly loosing your work.

    multi-threading is good and all, but they need to work on the performance of their Writer application as well. The fact that it sometimes lags when I'm typing does not do good for it's reputation.

    Works fine on my Windows build. Either your PC or your choice in OS.

    I think a more user friendly interface has higher importance. Its 2000ish look scares the crap out of MS Office users.

    If the developer is watching you might want to change the code to use a thread group instead of spawning lots o threads.

    Funny, every time I've introduced a new user to it they sigh in relief "yeah, this thing has no ribbon"!

    It doesn't have to be ribbon. Now it looks like they just dropped icons/bars on the window randomly.

    This will be a nice feature. I've heard some people wish libreoffice could load large calc sheets faster and this would help them (they have more than 1 core on their machine.).

    But when will the ridiculous 1024 column limit be removed?
