Kingsoft Office Suite Professional 2013 – 50% Off

 

I’ve been working with Kingsoft Office for a couple of weeks now and haven’t found any weaknesses. For my needs it’s every bit as good as Microsoft Office for a fraction of the cost. MS Office is grossly overpriced and absolutely bloated when it comes to hard drive size. Kingsoft Office is tiny in comparison, but works just the same. It has all the formatting, spelling, formulas, tables, sheets and just about everything else the standard user will need from Office. I have no problem making documents and spreadsheets. Quite frankly, it’s really hard to tell it’s not Microsoft Office.

With that in mind you can buy the full version of Kingsoft Office Suite Professional 2013 for a mere $35. Microsoft Office will cost you $399. The Professional version allows you to save in the full Office 2010 .DOCX format. If you need it, the Professional version also supports VBA macros for Automation. To be honest, this version of Office is pretty damn awesome and is an absolute steal at $35. I’ve provided links to the full version that work for a full year so you can try out all the features. Now’s your chance to buy your own version that won’t expire. But, Kingsoft has two models for selling their Office Suite. You can buy the package and it’s yours for as long as you like, or you can go for their subscription model. There’s even a discount for that.

If you haven’t tried it, Kingsoft Office is perhaps the best Office replacement I’ve seen. OpenOffice and LibreOffice are great products, but I think Kingsoft is actually better.

    SoftMaker Office Professional is much better – best compatibility with Microsoft Office, all is displayed faithfully in both directions, a good mail client included (eM Client Pro), a very good thesaurus, portable usage from flash drive, a broad range of features, no qirks so far, other than Kingsoft Office.

    If you haven’t found any weaknesses in Kingsoft Office, I can tell you some of my annoying experiences:

    – ui and dictionaries only in English, or Chinese
    – wrong date format in most XLS files
    – wrong decimal point format
    – insert / overtype apparently not working
    – most shortcuts not working
    – interface problems in Win XP (only modern / ribbon works)
    – autonumbers files when saving (e.g. if I open foo10.10.2013.doc and choose save as, automatically offers to save foo10.10.2014.doc and this was not my intention; this is forcing me to edit an additional character in the file name).
    – at least *some* fields from MS WORD don’t work, such as File name (in document’s footer – it’s not updating and if trying force update errors invalid bookmark; it’s just the file name – what could be missing?

    and such more.
    Looks good at first sight, but has too much and oddities to seriously compete with a MSO alternative like SoftMaker Office Professional.
