    Free MS Office Alternative


    For those who would like an alternative to Microsoft Office for one reason or another (cost mainly), here's a free alternative; WPS for Business:

    The more widely known free alternative is LibreOffice.

    Polaris Office is free, but if you can get away with cloud services, Office Web Apps are free, and so is Google Docs.

    Nice!

    I posted here not because I was interested in an alternative, since I have a subscription to Office 365, but it's nice to see all the other freebies.

    Suggestion, please . . . For those who don't know how to get them, when you suggest a freebie, could you post a link?

    Thanks for the other suggestions so far.

    I am surprised no one has mentioned Apache OpenOffice yet.
