Apologies for the delay in being able to post - this is Steven Holmes (from facebook).|
For those on a tight budget and fore those for whom money is no object, KingSoft Office as an exceptional piece of software. All the three major domains are included these being word processing, spreadsheets and powerpoint presentation.
For those who require the option to use VBA (Visual Basic Applications), the Professional version is required.
Reasons this software outsmarts Microsoft Office: Price, feature/price point, Office compatibility, Program installation footprint (installation size), speed of start-up and lastly ease of use (low learning curve).
This software is thus highly recommended.
Additions I would like to see would be email client as a direct replacement for MS Outlook and a DTP application. But these are just extras I would like to see and not essential for the software as it currently stands.
