Wondering if Office is as light as Kingsoft Office? ;)
And do you know how the trail period is?
I have installed it. You will get 180 days subscription at the moment of activation.
Lite as Kingsoft? Hard question...
When installed MS Office occupies ~2GB of space, compared to Kingsoft with ~200mb. But in terms of speed when opening docs, and editing, both are pretty fast


Level 7
I hate the fact that the home user has to pay an annual subscription fee.

I still use 2007 office at home, 2010 at work. I like Office 2007...I think I paid $50 for 3 PC license for Office 2007, good old days.
