Series of books on OpenSource software
After producing a book on 'how to produce and publish your own book' using Scribus, I had taken up the task of writing a book on OpenOffice 4.x. Due to complaints from some German speaking guys at a Linux ralley somewhere in the Netherlands, this title was quickly edited to serve LibreOffice 4.x users as well.
So now we have two titles on sale in the Dutch language:
Ik wil met OpenOffice aan het werk
Ik wil met LibreOffice aan het werk
(I want to work with...)
Soon there will be a next new title dealing with the advanced use
of formulas & functions in Calc, which is used both in OpenOffice and LibreOffice. And there's more to come!
Of course the layout
is done in Scribus version 1.4.4.
Here  you can find the cover,
originally designed in InDesign :-) by Hans Hollestelle from Kampen, The Netherlands.
(Some people still have to be persuaded into using OpenSource...)
I find Scribus 1.4.4 a fine program to use in OpenSource publishing in combination
with one of the major Dutch Printing On Demand firms, beit that the interface could do with some improvements.
Eagerly awaiting version 1.5 because a little bird has made some promises regarding the interface...
