    I just tried this, for the PDF editing. However it seems you can only view, and not edit the text in PDF files. I opened a few PDFs and Execl files, and there always was an annoying delay of a few seconds before the files would open. I don't know why there was a delay, as files open instantly in both SoftMaker and Ability Office.

    Another annoyance, was that it always defaulted to the Documents folder when opening files, rather than the most recently used folder.

    I uninstalled it as it can't edit PDFs and I already have two other office suites installed for working with spreadsheets.

    At the moment, I think WPS Office is a better option for a free office suite. Still it is nice to see another free office suite being released. I don't use WPS Office anymore and and am not sure of the current limitations of the free version.

    Hmm. Nothing mentioned about Outlook. Unfortunately the way I use Outlook, all the alternatives come up short.

    Yeah right, you need to sign in before you can use it, so it's crap to me.
