I’ve been using TextMaker for years, and I love it so much, because it starts quickly, runs without crashes and is highly compatible to Microsoft Word. It even has some easy to use, but powerful desktop publishing functions. The paid version of SoftMaker Office has some additional goodies and is quite affordable. You can upgrade from FreeOffice for a reduced price; at least in the past this was possible.


Early versions of TextMaker 2018 for Linux used to crash sometimes after copying and pasting text. But the SoftMaker developers are constantly fixing bugs, and one of the service packs finally fixed this problem. So I can say that TextMaker is a really good product.

Works very fast on my netbook, as compared to slow OpenOffice.
