Windows 7: Free MS Office Clone WPS / KINGSOFT OFFICE

Free MS Office Clone WPS / KINGSOFT OFFICE

Hi there
If you are looking for a good alternative to MS office I suggest you try KINGSOFT (or WPS now) Office -- even the EXCEL seems to be reasonably compatible with Ms OFFICE. I haven't tried comparison with EXCEL 2013 but it doesn't have problems with some of my quite complex OFFICE 2007 spreadsheets and the OFFICE 2010 stuff I've tested works fine too.

There's even Linux versions (.deb, .rpm, .tgz) so you can install using the package manager of your choice. It's in ALPHA on Linux but for ALPHA software it seems pretty good.

Screenshot of a complex spreadsheet created with EXCEL but running in WPS office on an OPENSUSE 13.1 Linux system.

IMO A lot more compatible than LIBREOFFICE

Cheers
jimbo

Hi there

Thanks - I like messing around with Stocks etc.

NOTE : The Linux version(yet) doesn't support VBS but the Windows versions seems to run VB macros (or at least some simple ones - haven't tested it exhaustively though).

Cheers

I'm keeping an eye on it for now. I'm happy with M$ Office 2010 which is good until around October of 2020 but if M$ continues with the trend it started with Office 2013 and Office 365, I won't be continuing with M$ Office products come 2020. Word Perfect is another one I'm watching (that one isn't a freebie).

Hey,

I am always on the lookout for free word processors, excel etc. I give them to fellow students who are not lucky enough to have spare cash to pay for office. I myself upgraded to Office 2013 because I got money off due to being a student. It works fine for what I need (when it isn't erroring on startup because of a plugin) but many people at university have asked me about free bundles (like office). In the past I have forwarded them to https://www.openoffice.org/ as it has been of use to me in the past.

I will definitely recommend this to anyone who asks me in the future.

Thanks for sharing

Both of them have had their ups and downs and both depend on Java for some of their functions; there is no way I will allow Java on any of my computers.

I've been using Kingsoft office on my Android tablet (Nexus 7) for a couple of years now and found it to be fairly decent. I recently got a Surface Pro 3 tablet and have MS Office 2013 on it. Since I got the SP3, I rarely use the Nexus 7, it's mostly collecting dust.

I recommend Kingsoft to friends that are looking for inexpensive/free alternatives to MS Office.

I installed the WPS 2014 BETA on a test Win 8.1 VM.
It fixes a bug in the Spreadsheet scrollbar that I've seen with large spreadsheets.

Anyone interested in testing the BETA, or seeing the advertised changes:
