If you've ever heard of the Kingsoft Office Suite, you might be familiar with their word processor. Well, the company has decided to offer this product as a separate freeware product if you're not ready to take the plunge and purchase the Kingsoft Office Suite.
With that said, Kingsoft Writer is somewhat similar to Microsoft Word or Corel WordPerfect. The layout is just like any other word processor we've seen in the last few years but in this case it follows the route of OpenOffice and offers itself to users for free.
One thing that makes Kingsoft Writer Free a perfect companion in your daily working life is the fact that it is fully compatible with the current word processing standard: Microsoft Office files like .doc, .docx and .txt files. Kingsoft's product also fully supports the addition and positioning of clipart and other images within documents.
As any self-respecting word processing would do, Kingsoft Writer Free includes a spell-check feature and does a pretty good job, at least in English.
Overall, a very familiar layout with extremely easily recognizable icons. And the blue/white square "W" icon? Looks like something else I'm used to seeing
