Cool story bro. Except the free version is useless and annoying. It doesn't even support export to xlsx, but it sh*ts popups in my face instead. Do you consider this a 1:1 replacement? Oh and they couldn't even get the download links right on the comparison page.

And no, you DON'T HAVE TO WRITE IN CAPS, it won't make me take you more seriously (in fact it's quite the opposite).

$140 is for home and student.

$400 is for Professional 1 computer.

Kingsoft is $70 for the equivalent of the $400 license. If you are going to use the home and student license to do actual work you might as well pirate office.

So, for the best FREE Office program, OpenOffice or KingsoftOffice?
Please, anyone who has used both, tell me your opinion!

OpenOffice and LibreOffice have very disgusting UI. That is a main problem about it. Kingsoft Office has nice UI, but there is a real BIG problem - it's English and Chinese only - locales, dictionaries and supported standards.

They didn't fix the problem with regional standards - Spreadsheets cannot be used in Europe, because it's hardcoded to use dot instead of comma for decimal separator. It also changes Windows regional settings at every launch of any Kingsoft Office app, making big problems for other apps...

Looks very nice, but it doesn't have as much function as Office 2013 nor is it as polished.

I think Kingsoft Office is the best free office suite in my opinion

That looks pretty awesome for free, and a lot more modern than Open Office too! Might have to try that sometime and see how it functions.

what does original creation date have to do with ripping off the ribbon? it looks like the whole thing is designed to be confounded with MSO, logos, colour scheme, name.

Microsoft introduced Word in 1982 running under MS-DOS. Kingsoft were a cheap Chinese copycat then and are even worse now. The reason they lost their "massive" market share was because they got caught packaging malware with their own products.

Free. Yes. But it's Kingsoft. No extra charge for the malware. These people have a bad, bad, bad reputation.

And just what do you base that on? Do you know anything about them? Do you know that they have been in business since 1988? Do you know that PC maker Lenovo has a invested in them? Do you know that they invested in and built Amazon.com China? Do you know that they released their first word processor in the DOS days and was very popular in China until Office 95 came around. Pirated versions of MS Office literally almost put them out of business. Do you know that the Chinese version of Kingsoft Office - WPS Office - was made the standard for various branches of the Chinese government back in 2003? Do you know that they collaborated with Intel and IBM to integrate their text-to-text and text-to-speech technology into WPS Office back in 2004? Do you think IBM and Intel are going to collaborate on a piece of software that was malware? Your statement is base-less and lack any intelligent thought.
