[FEATURED GEEK SQUEAK] The Best Microsoft Office Alternative Out There (WPS Office–Formerly Kingsoft Office) – Many home-based computer users get in their minds, especially after a new computer install, that they have to install (and buy) Microsoft Office.
Well, I am here to tell you that you don’t. If you are a home based user, and even if you are still in the workforce using Microsoft Office products, I encourage you to take a look at WPS Office (formerly called Kingsoft Office). The difference between the two is this – COST. Microsoft Office will cost you a considerable amount of money; whereas, WPS is FREE.
I currently have WPS Office installed on all of my Windows based computers, Android tablets, and Android Phone. If you are an Apple user or Linux user, you are in luck, as well.
WPS Office Highlights

- Supports DOC, XLS, PPT, TXT and more
