WPS Office, One of the best Office App for Linux

What's WPS Office?

WPS Office (an acronym for Writer, Presentation and Spreadsheets, previously known as Kingsoft Office) is an office suite for Microsoft Windows, Linux, iOS and Android OS, developed by Zhuhai-based Chinese software developer Kingsoft. WPS Office is a suite of software which is made up of three primary components: WPS Writer, WPS Presentation, and WPS Spreadsheet.

The personal basic version is free to use. A watermark was placed on all printed output after a 30-day trial; this was removed in version 2016. A fully featured professional-grade version is also available for a subscription fee. The current version of WPS Office is WPS Office 10.

The product has had a long history of development and success in China under the name "WPS" and "WPS Office". For a time, Kingsoft branded the suite under "KSOffice" in an attempt to gain an international market foothold, but has since returned to "WPS Office". Since WPS Office 2005, the user interface is similar to that of Microsoft Office products, and supports Microsoft document formats besides native Kingsoft formats.
