Default There is a World Beyond Microsoft Office

"Until last week, I'd never heard of Kingsoft or this product. I had, however, tried all the usual freebie Microsoft Office alternatives: OpenOffice, LibreOffice, Lotus Symphony, Google Docs, and so on. They're all OK--good enough, certainly, for most users--but I'll admit I've become spoiled by Microsoft's Ribbon interface, which made its debut in Office 2007 and carried over to Office 2010. The famed freebies mostly resemble Office 2003--if not an even earlier version."

If you have spent any time in large corporations, I think there is a good chance, a really good chance, that you have come across Microsoft Office.  While alternatives have sprung up, especially with people hopping onto the benefits of online office applications, I still see a sizable amount of people working with Microsoft Office.  I will admit I have not tried Kingsoft Office myself yet, but work of it having a ribbon interface has me interested.  I hated the ribbon interface at first, but after a while, I started to see its benefits.  However, my word processing needs are fairly basic, and I notice that an Outlook replacement is missing from the selection.  Yes, I still use Outlook.  I am that old.  Now I think I'll go back to my cave and bang a few rocks together.
