Templates for the win!

There is so much going on in the world of LibreOffice, that my "must blog about this"-list gets longer and longer. Here is another little gem that had to wait far to long to get dragged into the limelight. Jussi Schultink kicked this one of with a bit of an grumble post about the default settings and templates in LibreOffice. But the beauty of free software is that you are not left with grumbling as your first, last and only resort -- so Jussi teamed up with Alan Bell and founded the "Ubuntu Template Curators" to change and improve the situation. I connected the Template Curators with Stefan Knorr, Christoph Noack of LibreOffice User Experience and Design Team. Quickly Alexander Wilms of template and design creation fame also joined the bunch. With this team, I am looking forward for some amazing new templates and defaults improvements in LibreOffice 3.6/Ubuntu P+1!

If you are interested in getting beautiful templates into LibreOffice, Im sure these guys would love to hear from you!

(1) Or just want to show off in front of your friends, because people all over the world are using your template for their presentation ;)
