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

      I think WPS Office is the closest you can get to Microsoft Office (Word, Excel and PowerPoint). It handels .docx witch was my main problem. The WPS Writer may be in a early stage but I see alot of potential of it becomming better, more easy to use, beautiful and more stable.

      SuperMinds 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.)

      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.

      Gumibar84 It's annoyingly blank and too basic for my needs - doesn't really do enough to be considered an alternative to MS Word - maybe WordPAD or Notepad - bot not WORD.. That's not a fair or accurate comparison - that would be like trying to compare a basic guestbook addon to a WordPress installation - It's just not the same thing ...
