Micro***t Word on Linux and alternatives

Are there good Microsoft word alternatives that support Linux (I don’t mind closed source)? Libreoffice is meh and only office is quite good, but are there any better ones? Also, is there a way to install word on Linux using wine? When I do that my laptop just overheats and loses internet connection.

As someone with dyslexia, the superior spell and grammar check is what I miss most in libreOffice. I usually have to use an external tool for spell check like grammarly.

I have been using friendica for a while now. It's good but you need a little time to get used to it. You can configure it to fit your own needs but need to some digging to figure everything out.

Never happened to me. I am using the Nerdica instance.

FlorisBoard | FOSS keyboard that respects your privacy (florisboard.org)

I came across everyday topic on Techlore Discussions about free and open source keyboards for Android and discovered this little gem. It is FlorisBoard, a virtual keyboard for Android which respects privacy of the user. I can sigh with relief and finish my search for that singular keyboard for typing stuff on the go....

SwiftKey you don't need to switch language. If both languages use the same same alphabet you can use both of them interchangeable without doing anything. For people that use multiple languages it's very useful.

[Survey] Can you tell which images are AI generated? (forms.gle)

Hey everyone. I made a casual survey to see if people can tell the difference between human-made and AI generated art. Any responses would be appreciated, I’m curious to see how accurately people can tell the difference (especially those familiar with AI image generation)

I have had several requests to turn some of my threads into long-form blog posts and now I’m wondering what a good platform for that might be.

Any recommendations?

I checked this is the current status

Project status

Currently, Plume developers have less time and Plume is not actively maintained. New features may take time to be implemented. Could you consider similar purpose software: WriteFreely, WordPress with ActivityPub plugin and so on?

I did not know that is was possible. Maybe I will play around with it but I am kinda afraid of making everything ugly.
