SoftMaker Software GmbH today as the developer of SoftMaker Office 2008 provides an opportunity to get a free license and original software (giveaway), Windows, Linux, and both version office suite. Try to visit the giveaway page to get it.
That information make me want to try this office suite.
Master installer of this software is 60 MB, small enough to be kind of software. Includes word processing software (TextMaker), spreadsheet (PlanMaker), to create slide presentation (SoftMaker Presentations), and text processing standard (BasicMaker).
I tried to use TextMaker and PlanMaker to open some private documents. Document format .doc (Microsoft Office Word 97 format – 2003) and .xls (Microsoft Office Excel 97 format – 2003) open properly. it’s just not support the latest Microsoft Office formats (.docx, .xlsx, etc).
Interesting things that I found, you can create a portable version of SoftMaker Office 2008 by your self.
So, if you will try this software? while there is a chance…..
