WPS Office 2017-2018 Full Free Download
WPS Office Free isn’t just an alternative to Microsoft Office – it manages to mimic pretty much the entire look and basic set of features. Available completely free of charge (although there are ads associate with certain features), this office suite comprises a word processor, presentation tool, spreadsheet and more, and is fully compatible with Microsoft document formats.
WPS Office is a free office suite design to compete with MSOffice. The WPS Office was initially develope by KingSoft and contains the three core components of an office suite: a word processor, spreadsheet editor, and presentation viewer and creator. WPS Office is multiplatform and is easily the most formidable opponent to Microsoft Office. It has a ribbon interface and is the first program to be so fully feature and free. The only downside is that each piece of the suite contains advertisements and now has a “premium” version available, although the premium price is well below its competitors’ prices. WPS is great for casual users who don’t want to pay for an expensive office suite.
The product has had a long history of development in China under the name “WPS” and “WPS Office“. For a time, Kingsoft branded the suite as “KSOffice” in an attempt to gain an international market foothold, but later returned to “WPS Office“. Since WPS Office 2005 the user interface is similar to that of Microsoft Office products, and supports Microsoft document formats besides native Kingsoft formats.
On 28 May 2017 Kingsoft tweeted that the Linux version was at a halt, but denied this a few days later, and issued a further alpha version. Kingsoft also tweeted making reference to making WPS Office for Linux open-source towards the end of 2017 to allow the Linux community to step in and continue maintaining it, but later deleted these tweets.
Overall, WPS Office 2016 Personal Edition is a good alternative to Microsoft’s offering. The Writer program is a versatile word processor; the Presentation program is an easy to use and effective slide show maker that helps you to create impressive multimedia presentations; and the Spreadsheets program is both a flexible and a powerful spreadsheet application.
