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

"The most significant item when preparing documents,
presentations, and spreadsheets is the appearance of the final
product. While fonts are important you'll want more than that. You
will want nice templates and good clip-art. The default templates
may not cover the range of things you're looking for. I have
created my own set of 18 templates (11 ooimpress, 1 oodraw, 4
oowriter, and 2 oocalc). These templates can be added as an
extension making it very easy to integrate them. You can add my
template pack from here.
"Clip art is also a useful way to add some excitement to a
document. Clker.com provides online royalty free public domain clip
art and they have an extension to better integrate it with OOo. The
clker.com OpenOffice.org addon provides tight integration with
clker.com by linking the cliparts you choose and save to your
clipart basket will then appear in the extension window inside OOo.
Almost all their cliparts are in ODG, SVG, and PNG so you don't
have to worry about compatibility issues."
