I never even heard of this office packages company.

If the commenter is correct, then CNET really need to rethink their recommendations.

You do know Kingsoft is a communist Chinese company whose nation has been conducting unrelenting hack attacks to strip America of all its technology? If you can't build it, steal it is their credo. What better way to open up a million backdoors then by offering free software that exactly emulates Microsoft's flagship program.

By the way read their EULA very carefully. IT CLEARLY STATES THAT ANYTHING CREATED USING THEIR SOFTWARE BECOMES THE PROPERTY OF KINGSOFT. Have you read it Karyn? I downloaded this software several years ago read that EULA and used Revo to deepscan uninstall that software. It had put tendrils all through my computer. Revo is very good and got it all, but don't be fooled.

This is part and parcel to China's hacking attempts and for cnet to recommend it is both incredibly naive and questionable at best.
