I needed office suite for my classes; I couldn’t afford it, office suites at that time out there cost anywhere from 200 to 700 dollars. That was time before I found out about Kingsoft Office. Freeware version of Kingsoft Office 2012 came out somewhere around September of 2011. I downloaded it and started using it. Download size was of about 82mb which was amazing when you compare it to other office suites file sizes that range from 200mb to 800mb. I was amazed finally it was first freeware office suite that can go against Microsoft Office. It was very compatible with Microsoft office. Whatever I created in it, when I opened it in Microsoft office came out exact with no problems.
· Kinsoft Writer- Style that competes with top office suites, It has font art, it has graphic art that you can insert. Lots of fonts to choose from, and spell checker.
· Kingsoft Presentation-Easy to use with many presentation templates to choose from, for example depending on type of presentation, if you want to insert video, pictures, graphs, there are buttons on specific slide templates that you click and easily add your graphics. Also you can choose design of you background.
· Kingsoft Spreadsheet- Choose your data, Set number of rows, and columns, input your data; calculate using formula system that is used in Microsoft office. Then if you want to show data in graphic mode, then you can create graphs and charts that people can visualize and understand your data better.
For me there was no better software, I have tried so many different freeware programs with weird and unfamiliar layouts, programs that weren’t compatible with top software used in my university. Kingsoft Office was only software that really matches and layout is familiar and Design is simple and most of all it has lots of features that you find in top software that cost anywhere from 200-700 dollars and the version that I was using was freeware. Recently Kingsoft Office pro came out and it costs 69$ vs if you want to spend 400$ for Microsoft Office that has very similar features as Kingsoft Office. I really recommend Kingsoft Office because it’s the best out there and the cost of it is amazing, also if you can not afford to buy pro, download freeware edition and you will be amazed.
Try it for yourself and you will be amazed: http://www.kingsoftstore.com/download/index.html
