    Their web site does not mention compatibility with the Open Document Format for Office Applications — aka ODF.
    This product may be free and the alternative to MS Office but, for me, that is all and not enough. And therefore, a no-no.

    I haven’t used open office for a while, but this one opened a docx document just like Word would. No compatibility issues here….Great software for now!

    Can anybody compare this in detail with LibreOffice and Open Office? Which is the best? Is there a portable version available (I use portable LibreOffice – it is super)? Another thing where LibreOffice, Open office, and Microsoft Office fail: no Android version! Can Kingsoft come to the rescue?

    I just found out that there IS an Android Version! Wow!! You can find it here:
