The Kingsoft Office Suite (Standard Edition) is the entry-level office application for the home or small business. It mainly focuses on home usage and students, but the programs it bundles are also suitable for small businesses as it provides word processing, spreadsheets and Powerpoint clones. With that said, though Kingsoft Office Suite is 100% compatible with the programs it clones and therefore can open and work with Excel spreadsheets, Word documents (.doc, .docx) and Powerpoint files (.PPT, PPTX, .DPS, etc).
The word processing component is called Kingsoft Writer; it looks and acts virtually the same as most office word processors we've seen over the past few years and the icons are very similar to those that you would see in Microsoft Word and Corel WordPerfect. The word processor also supports PDF files and can save your documents as Adobe PDFs viewable in the Adobe Reader or on the web. It goes without saying that Kingsoft Writer features a great spell checker.
The Powerpoint counterpart to Kingsoft Office is called Presentation Professional. It save, edit and create virtually any type of presentation which would be compatible with Microsoft Powerpoint.
The last part of the bundle is Kingsoft Office's implementation of a spreadsheet application; we actually didn't spend too much time testing that aspect, but it functions virtually the same as Microsoft Excel, though looks a little bit different.
One thing that Kingsoft Office's Standard Office product features is something which Microsoft Office users have been begging for for years: Tabs. It is apparently unique to Kingsoft Office Standard and makes getting around in documents faster and makes multitasking much easier! File encryption is also something which Kingsoft Office has built it.
Finally, the program is much smaller in size and cost than Microsoft Office, though not as free as OpenOffice! It installs quickly and runs pretty fast on our system.
Kingsoft Office Suite is software which can open DOC and DOCX files.Kingsoft Office Suite features and highlights:
