Programs / Re: LibreOffice 6.1.0 x64 Lite
« Last post by Vasudev on Yesterday at 12:27 PM »
libreoffice has been updated to 6.1.0 (link in the first message of the thread).
It’s a x64, light version with only 3 dictionaries installed by default (English, French, Spanish). The interface is in English.
Unlike the previous versions, the installer is now totally silent, with a progress bar. You can deploy this version in your firm, Libreoffice is free.






On Windows, I use Office 2016 which can open odt and other Libreoffice/Openoffice formats. On linux I use LibreOffice.

Is this the newer, lighter version of Windows 10 1803 you said you were coming out with? I downloaded one a few days ago and I found it somewhat bloated.
Whatever you do, please use the 64bit versions of Sumatra, VLC, and whatever else you put there. And please don't add that Classic Shell garbage, I hate it with a passion.

It is a bit "bloated" indeed. It's the case for the windows 10 enterprise edition too. That's why I put classic shell, you don't see the ads and the games that are installed without your knowing it.I could not stand the tiles too.
In some firms, they are already installing Libreoffice, which is totally free, instead of microsoft office. As for windows 10, I'm sure they are going to lose market shares too.
For the 64 bit version of VLC and sumatra I'm not sure there is a big difference, I'll look at that later.



Note that the movie Morgan is available on the forum: http://www.nomaher.com/forum/index.php?topic=1023.msg29422#msg29422
PS: the movie is a bit violent, and not meant for most users of the forum.
I removed those bloated UWP apps using NTLite. As for VLC and Sumatra they recommend using x64 builds.
@humbert: Use AiOBoot from Majorgeeks. It can dual boot UEFI and Legacy w/o needing to burn a ISO twice.

Which ISO are you trying? For starters, use YUMI EFI to install Ubuntu or any Linux distro ISO, Windows 10 installer and Hirens PE. Let me know how it was. Fat32 is a must on YUMI EFI.

I just looked at the latest version of Yumi and I see no option to use UEFI instead of MBR. This option is available on Rufus, but I'm still having trouble when I select "UEFI flashdrive" from the boot menu on the motherboard.

For some reason I can't get my copy of Windows to update to 1803. The big problem with Windows update isn't so much that it'll push updates by force, but that it'll continue doing so forever even if the update fails and makes no attempt to fix the problem. I had to do the unthinkable - shut off updates entirely using Windows10 Privacy. Let me ask you -- where do you download updates and add them manually?

I might mention that Scarface's copy of Redstone 4 did install. The problem is I have to reinstall all these apps despite the fact that their files weren't deleted during the update process.
I download ISOs from here: https://tb.rg-adguard.net/public.php
Manual updates from here: https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=KB4343909
Check W10 update history: https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=KB4343909
As for EFI booting, you must use YUMI UEFI BETA version to accomplish true EFI capsule booting via USB drives.
For disabling Win updates permanently use WUMT wrapper script from majorgeeks.
You can download my ISO  or scarface posted to upgrade to 1803(Ether one will do and is much better than MSFT ISO). Do a macrium reflect Image before upgrade.
Simply mount the ISO and do the following:
  • Disconnect from WiFi or ethernet
  • Remove all external accessories
  • Wait for 10-30 mins and let it finish up
  • Install vc++ runtimes & dx runtimes
I recommend sticking with current updates since cumulative updates for 1803 is nearly as large as older releases from 1607,1703 and 1709. On 1803, too many problems than fixes.
I am sticking to 1803 till its EOL.

Tonight, windows 10 x64 pro RS4 with the latest updates is available.

Is this the newer, lighter version of Windows 10 1803 you said you were coming out with? I downloaded one a few days ago and I found it somewhat bloated.

Whatever you do, please use the 64bit versions of Sumatra, VLC, and whatever else you put there. And please don't add that Classic Shell garbage, I hate it with a passion.

BTW, is there any other source other than Mega? I hate it when they they want me to use THEIR app to download something. This is exactly what's happening now.

Tomorrow the movie Morgan, released in 2016, will be available on the forum.

Link: https://mega.nz/#!YNUgUYJT!QOwM9D4CphHSgZs4YH1cOoyEhEszRBwzaLKl2pEd1KY
2 audio tracks: English (by default) & French.
Subtitles are available in English (by default), French, Hindi and Spanish.
There are numerous Indian users on the forum, and some of whom may not have a fluent English, so the Hindi Subtitles might prove useful.

Storyline: A corporate risk-management consultant must decide whether or not to terminate an artificially created humanoid being.

A brief overview of the US stock market:



I'm still bearish. Because overall, stocks are still expensive. Amazon and msft at 900 billion, if we calculate the current forward PER, we have 90 for the former and 40 for the latter.


Also, note that I'm still bullish for the $ against the €, with a target at 1.05 for the €/$ pair.
