Dear Abhishek (toroop),

Welcome to the community. I had tested OpenERP (now Odoo) and found to be more adaptive for Indian Government way of functioning. I wish Odoo is widely used in India. All the best.


Dear Sparky,

Welcome to the community.

I did use SCO Unix and Xenix. We had a Xenix server connected with dumb terminals (tty 220d). One of the word processor we were using was ‘lynx’. It was so flexible, fast and did its job very efficiently. I would like to know, whether ‘lynx’ (word processor) is available in any other name under Linux?

Thanks and Regards.


DUH !!!

@cordx Yep just a typo, but thanks for the heads-up!


Probably not - but “Wordgrinder” is a pretty neat console / text based wordprocessor…

Hello shedidit and Welcome to the community :slight_smile:



Welcome to to the forum, if you need advice, you are in the right place.



Hello all,
I’ve been following along for a bit now, but had yet to post anything.
I’m Manda, from the US, and working in the electronic publishing industry (QA, testing, workflow). Although I have dabbled with Linux here and there since the early 2000s, I only recently converted in 2017. Kubuntu & KDE-Fedora have been my happy distros, so far.
Thanks for creating this community.


Welcome to the community Manda. Feel free to share your experiences and ask any questions and contribute to threads.


Hello my name is Poly and I live in the U.S.A.
I am retired but now spend my time inventing, researching wide variety of topics from Linux / creating a Linux image to aquaponics to tiny houses to ??? and I am also a homeschooling parent.
I am not a solid user of Linux yet but have been (nicely) bitten by the penguin through playing with Raspian on my children’s Raspberry Pi few years back. Goal for 2019 is to convert my LT to Ubuntu and building an exciting image of fun useful programs. I am looking to introduce / convert my children to Linux as well.
Have been following It’s FOSS for several years, probably since I started playing with the Raspberry Pi.
From the It’s FOSS community I will probably not be responding to much but will be reading much to learn much. I may be asking some questions from time to time, like what does the community feel is the best free “student-focused” CAD/FEA. . . programs for Ubuntu (so many choices to choose from - uggh)?
Thanks and blessings to Abhishek and all in the It’s FOSS community!
