WPS Office – Microsoft Office Clone

If you haven’t guessed already, WPS stands for Writer, Presentation and Spreadsheets, which should further tell you what this program suite is about.

Having installed and briefly looked at these applications, I am somewhat astonished that Microsoft has not aggressively pursed legal action against the makers of this software. It is a complete rip off of the Microsoft Office 2007 user interface.

Having just discovered this suite, we haven’t done a battery of tests yet, stay tuned for that, but we did evaluate file compatibility with a few Microsoft Word 2010 files, and found there to be no issues in our brief test.

So, for businesses strapped for cash that need a functional and FREE alternative to the core Microsoft Office applications (Word, Excel and Powerpoint) , WPS Office might just be the ticket. It looks and feels exactly like Office, so users should be able to adapt almost instantly. However, we will update this article in the coming weeks after a more complete evaluation can be performed.

Unrated at this time.
