Google Docs has some powerful features, collaborative editing being chief among them. This week we’ll show you why Etherpad Lite is more than just multiplayer notepad.
Plus why Valve’s Gabe Newell thinks Apple might be a big threat, the major new feature landing in Ubuntu 13.04, and the tasty gift Google gave to some UK schools!
AND SO MUCH MORE!
All this week on, The Linux Action Show!

Up front: This is really focused on Google Docs’ collaborative features. As I have found these to be particularly a powerful competitive advantage of Google Docs. If you haven’t tried it, try it during your next meeting, or brainstorming session, or maybe just grocery shop list making from separate rooms. TRY IT!
First launched in November 2008, the software was acquired by Google in December 2009 and released as open source later that month. Several services now use the Etherpad software, including PiratePad, Telecomix Pad, Framapad, Mozilla Pad (MoPad), PrimaryPad, TypeWith.me, Sync.in, TitanPad and iEtherPad.com. Further development is coordinated by the Etherpad Foundation.
