Download and Install WPS Office, Best Ms. Office alternative for Linux User

Bismillah… Hello world!

For this moment, I’ll share about office software for Linux user. This software, I think is the best software alternative for Microsoft Office user on linux. It’s called WPS Office, free and best office software for linux. If you have try Libre office, me too. But, I think WPS is more useful, and very compatible with Ms. Office extention (.doc/.docx/ppt/pptx/.xls/.xlsx).

The WPS is suitable for Windows, Linux, IOS, and Android. Users windows and Mac can download the WPS Office from the official site : www.wps.com , and especially for Linux user, we can download it from wps community site: http://wps-community.org/.
