well I never heard of that product and if there is any truth of what the commenter states, I would not want to try it.

I really do not see any free office product that is better than LibreOffice. I have been using LibreOffice since it was just about to be released off of the "release candidate stage". Have been supporting LO since 3.3.2 or 3.3.3. I have been handing out brochures of one type or another promoting LO, and CDs and DVDs with LO on them since the spring/summer of 2011.

I believe that LibreOffice is better than MSO, not just a free alternative to MSO. I stopped buying MSO with the 2003 release.

So, I do not agree with your article.

I believe in LibreOffice and all of its pros and cons. I use it and promote it.

So, I have never heard of Kingsoft's office package. I have never seen any other articles stating that Kingsoft was a good or great free package.

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
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.
