    Worst than Microsoft Word. Their enormous surveillance and privacy violations are very dangerous. I suggest LibreOffice instead.

    Google docs is even worst than Microsoft Word. Their enormous surveillance and privacy violations are unacceptable. I suggest LibreOffice instead.

    It is absolutely free. It also has some incredible features like pdf to word and much more. WPS Office gives all necessary components of MS-Office i.e. Word, Excel, Power Point. The best part is that it is cross-platform.

    VERY GOOD PROGRAM BUT IT IS NOT OPEN SOURCE so keep that in mind. I, personally, did not use it. but, a friend of mine uses it and spoke greatly about it. He said it deserves 10 out of 10 in every term (Easiness , Responsiveness , Stability , etc.)

    Has many many features similar to Microsoft Word, and some that it doesn't it. Much more lightweight to run than Microsoft Word. The Spell Check needs some major help.

    If you know how to use Word, the you will feel at home using OnlyOffice. It's feature rich, supports all platforms and even the browser. You can collaborate with other people, and OnlyOffcie respects your privacy.

    Compared to something like Apple Pages, it's not the cleanest and smoothest experience, but if you have used MS Word og LibreOffice, it won't be a problem.

    Very similar layout to Microsoft Office so its the best alternative for people use to that. And especially for me, ecuations in google docs and libre office are ugly compare to Microsoft format which OnlyOffice use.

    If you are like me: one who only needs the necessary to fulfill your needs, and really like when the response of the software comes quickly (think that the MS Office in general certainly does not). This is the right solution. It is fully compatible with outputs formats from MS Word; it is fast; and it does everything you need to white a nice and organized document, whatever that is.

    Powerful features with a very intuitive interface. Outputs in MS Word formats plus ODT, PDF, HTML and ePub, among many others. Reads most common formats, including MS Word. Fully customizable interface. Fast and compact. Excellent documentation. The best word processor for personal use, period.
