Editors' review

Kingsoft's Office Suite Professional 2013 offers affordable compatibility with Microsoft Office. Building on Kingsoft's popular Office Suite Free, the Pro version adds a new tabbed interface, VBA macros, intuitive table and paragraph tools, and improved exporting. And, unlike the freeware, no pop-ups. Office Suite Professional bundles Writer, Spreadsheets, and Presentation. It runs in Windows XP to 8 and works best with at least 512MB of RAM and 1GB of free disk space.

We had several choices to make when installing Kingsoft Office Suite Pro, including associating it with Office formats like DOC and XLS and choosing from three interface styles: the new-for-2013 Elegant Black and Water Blue, and Classic, which has the familiar look of previous Office Suite releases. We have no faults with any of them: Both the new and old looks pack a lot of controls and features into the available space yet manage to do so without overwhelming the user; it's something they share with Microsoft's suite but not with some other would-be Office alternatives. Though not as extensive as Microsoft's options, Kingsoft's suite offers plenty of support, including a Help file, forums, and feedback tools.

With Microsoft Office alternatives, compatibility is the crucial factor, and Kingsoft's Office Suite tools excel in that department. We created, edited, and saved compatible documents in both Kingsoft and Microsoft's tools. Kingsoft's tools acquitted themselves well in looks and performance. Of course, Kingsoft Office Suite Professional 2013 isn't Microsoft Office; there are differences, and some entities require Office. But if you're looking for a productivity suite that goes head-to-head with Office in nearly every category except cost, try Kingsoft Office Suite Professional 2013.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of Kingsoft Office Free 2013 9.1.0.4246. The trial version includes pop-ups.

    "WPS Office Beta 2 is great!"

    August 18, 2014   |   By Little Peppermint

    Version: WPS Office 2014 Beta 2 9.1.0.4746

    Pros

    1.FREE!
    2.It supports French and you can easily switch languages between English and French.
    3.The coolest thing is "File Roaming". Log in to WPS Office with Google/Twitter/Facebook account, then the documents worked on PC can be continued on phones/tablets. But it seems that the mobile version is not ready...have to wait for some time.
    4. Good compatibility with MS Office.

    Cons

    1.WPS Office does not support multiple users on windows 8.
    2. You have to be careful to deselect the unwanted software when install.

    Summary

    WPS Office is completely compatible with MS Office and it is excellent enough to be the substitute of MS Office. Actually it is so easy to learn how to use WPS Office, which provides a brand new way to work anywhere and work anytime.
    I am strongly recommending this fantastic office suite to all of you.

    "Read the Eula and see if want to play their way."

    July 31, 2014   |   By Terry Gay

    Version: WPS Office 2014 Beta 2 9.1.0.4746

    Pros

    Its a direct ripoff of MS Office 2010 in form and function.

    Cons

    The EULA plainly states that anything you create is the property of Kingsoft. This means they get any revenues legally if you should write anything for profit. This also begs the question - How do they know what you have written with their software unless they an embedded worm that sends them copies of everything you have written? This is worse than the NSA.

    Summary

    The fact that whatever you write is the property of the Chinese government should make you avoid this product as though it were infected with Ebola. I am not sure if the program also has an embedded worm that sends them everything on your computer. Such a worm would not be picked up by your anti-virus software. The risk is too great for accepting this software no matter how well they cloned Microsoft's property.
