    It covers nearly all functionality of MSOff, is frequently updated, is extensively compatible. There is one omission: it lacks e-mail client, but it's on purpose, and you can always install Thunderbird :)

    In my opinion WPS gives you the closest thing to MS Office. If you are familiar with MS Office you should be able to use WPS right away. This is the main reason I prefer it to OpenOffice or Libre Office

    Apache Open Office is based on the old StarOffice, which 10-15 years ago was way ahead of MS Office - and so is AOO to-day. The other alternative is LibreOffice, which is also based upon the same old platform. Those two are especially efficient for work, but also fill any need a private user can have

    124MB download, no invasive services, doesn't spike CPU or HDD I/O, less cluttered GUI, seems to be compatible and efficient. What's not to love?

    Has many of the essential features, is relatively light on resources, is Open Source (a big +++) and works well with native MS file formats. Only Office also runs on Linux platform.

    Easily the easist, fastest & best designed MS Office alternative, though it may lack some advanced functionality (I wouldn't know, as I primarily use it for standard, basic office suite use)

    It has always been miles ahead of word. Every ms update includes an ancient feature of wordperfect. It is the most stable and usable. Only issues, suite compatability (between ppt and spreadsheet eg) and insert images (ie need to use insert frunction, no drag and drop) super stable super clean, awesome formatting, no gremlins. Reveal codes is super user friendly and useful
