Softmaker has released FreeOffice 2016 as an alternative to Microsoft Office.
It has word-processing, spreadsheet and presentation programs called TextMaker, PlanMaker and Presentations.
A few notable feature caught our eye:
- Will run on Windows XP which recent versions of Office for Windows will not.
- Also a release for Linux but not Mac.
- EPUB export option to convert documents into something readable on Kindle and other ebook readers.

FreeOffice might be worth considering if you need an extra Office desktop license but don’t want to pay Microsoft any more. Or you have a Windows XP machine that needs office software.
