WPS Office – a free (for personal use) near clone of MS Office for Windows and Linux

WPS Office – a free (for personal use) near clone of MS Office for Windows and Linux

For those that really need that look-and-feel of using MS Office for free on Windows or Linux, there is the option of WPS Office. It works surprisingly like MS Office with Word, Excel and PowerPoint format documents. Personally, I still prefer the sheer power and cross-platform capability of LibreOffice though. I've attached screenshots showing a Calibre test .docx document displayed in both WPS Office as well as LibreOffice for comparison.

Some pro's of WPS Office:
* Free for personal use
* Very familiar MS Office look-and-feel
* Default formats are MS Office formats
* Has an Android and iOS client
* Cloud option coming soon
* Free version comes 1GB cloud storage space
* Available in 8 languages

Some con's of WPS Office:
* No ODF format at all (international open document format)
* Pay for use in a business or enterprise
* Not open source software
* No MacOS client
* Free version limited to 5 pages export to PDF
