A FREE Alternative to Microsoft Office And Especially Microsoft Word

Most people at home think that when they buy a computer they have to throw the Microsoft Office Suite into the deal. Did you know that you can avoid the added expense and install other third party software that will get the job done for you and have the ability to read and write many of the Microsoft Office file formats?

Spending a lot of money on an Office Suite because you may write the occasional letter, does not make sense. If you are a student in school (or college) or a business person where Microsoft Office is a requirement, then it may make sense; and, even then (in most instances) people will only use the suite at home to view Office documents because they really don’t want to work from home.

Kingsoft Office SuiteRecently, I featured an Android Office Suite option for your phone and tablet called Kingsoft Office Suite for Android (see here).  I was so impressed with the Android version that I started to explore the Windows version that is available (for FREE) called Kingsoft Office Suite Free.

Kingsoft Office consists of a FREE word processor, spreadsheet program and presentation maker. You can download these components separately and in most instances you will only need the Word Processor (called Kingsoft Writer). To put this into perspective of how powerful (and compatible) the word processor is; Kingsoft Writer can open and edit all Microsoft Word files created with Microsoft Word 2003, 2007, and 2010.

Kingsoft Writer Free 2012 is a totally free word processor program with the qualities matching Microsoft Word and includes a wide range of easy to use features. It is the best Microsoft Word replacement supporting all the Word file formats including .docx. The easy to use user interface makes Kingsoft Writer an attractive choice of software for complete beginners and even the most advanced users. In addition, it introduced lots of useful functions including a built-in Word to PDF converter, automatic spell check, web layout view, etc.

So the next time you buy a computer, save yourself a considerable amount of money and give Kingsoft Office Suite FREE (especially Kingsoft Writer) a try…

Other Features of Writer Free 2012

    Looks cool. I’ll give it a try. I wonder if Amazon supports conversion of this file format to Kindle? Something Word doesn’t have either. I have to use 3rd party utilities to create ebooks. Word Processors need to start supporting that feature.

  2. […] article is sort of a repeat from a previous article, A FREE Alternative to Microsoft Office And Especially Microsoft Word, that highlighted the poor man’s version of Microsoft Office, called Kingsoft Office Suite Free […]
