    Best Free Office Clone yet


    Hi there

    IMO this is easily the best Office clone yet -- and it's FREE -- note though there's no OUTLOOK equivalent.

    If you need VBS support though for EXCEL macros you will need the PRO edition (still cheap) and it's as compatible as far as I can see --much better than OPEN / LIBRE Office

    WPS Office 10 Free Download, Free Office Software - Kingsoft Office

    (Also works on Linux, IOS and Android - although no VBS support on these platforms -- for 99% of most users this isn't important).
    Difference between PRO and FREE versions

    Compare Office Free 2013 and Office Professional 2013 for Windows - Kingsoft Office

    Cheers

    Tnx, downloading it now. Still can't find decent free replacement for MS Publisher which I use most.

    The best Outlook equivalent I've found was eM Client | Best Email Client for Windows 8, 7, Vista, XP
    it's very close and with it's easier gmail integration in some ways better, but it's just not quite there for me.

    Yes, it's well known- the latest apparently free version adds watermarks to prints.
    The thing I never resolved- and Kingsoft confirmed it over more than 2 years- is copying and pasting from text containing varied formats. It's very easy to find the pasted text formatted as Simsun.

    The biggest problem for me with the free version is after the initial 30 day trial i can not save .xlsx formatted Excel files.
    I can save them if i save as .xls or .et format.
    Same issue for saving Word .docx files.
