If you're looking for a free alternative to Microsoft Office, then Kingsoft Office Suite Free is definitely a contender.

Kingsoft Office Suite offers a number of features for creating, viewing and editing personal and business documents. Kingsoft Office Free 2012 includes Kingsoft Writer, Kingsoft Presentation and Kingsoft Spreadsheets which correspond to all the major elements found in Microsoft Office i.e. Excel, Word and Powerpoint. Kingsoft Office Suite is suitable for both personal and professional use although the professional version offers further features that will satisfy the demands of business users.

Most importantly Kingsoft Office Suite is compatible with the latest Microsoft Office file formats and can easily open, read and write documents created with Microsoft Office as well as a wide variety of other formats.

Built -in PDF Converter

Kingsoft Office Suite also includes a PDF converter that can save files including Writer, Spreadsheets and Presentations in PDF format. Alternatively, you can convert Kingsoft Writer, Spreadsheets and Presentations to PDF files.

Automatic spell check

Kingsoft Office Suite includes a built-in spell checker that works in real-time by marking the incorrect words in red when typing. It also includes a limited thesaurus which recommends words to help in improving your document.

Multiple document tabs

Kingsoft Office Suite also features tools for switching between multiple document windows using tabs. The tab bar that appears above the editing area allows you to switch between documents quickly and conveniently.

Lightweight

Kingsoft Office Suite is in a remarkably small package at just 70MB which is a fraction of the size of other office software. This means that it also installs remarkably quickly.

Document encryption

You can protect documents that you create in Kingsoft Office Suite with an encrypted password. Or you can set a document to be opened with a password in read-only format.

Overall Kingsoft Office Suite is a powerful office suite for anyone that wants a cheaper alternative to Microsoft Office.
