Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"Usually this requires getting flash cards, writing all of your information on them, and then going through the pile over and over again. There is a better, more modern way, to do this. The OpenOffice Impress OpenCards extension allows you to take a bare-bones presentation and use each slide as a flash card. Not only is a great tool for learning, it's not killing trees AND a stack of files on your PC is going to take up less room than a stack of paper flash cards.

"But is this as easy as it might seem? If you already know how to create a presentation in OpenOffice Impress – yes. If you're not sue how to create a very basic presentation then you might want to figure that process out before embarking on the creation of flash cards. Either way, you can install the extension so that when you have mastered the basic presentation, you are ready to go."
