... TheWorld2 is compatible with Maxthon2 plug-ins. COOL

Please tell HOW? !!  :tellme:

Edited:
- okay, I think I got it; you wrote and meant "plugins", not "addons" (which I was hoping for).
Sorry!  :-[

From a post today from wilderssecurity forums regarding KSO,

"We are currently giving away 300 full working serial numbers for KSO07 for those of you who simply cannot wait.  These will be provided on a first come, first served basis. Please contact David at freelicense@kingsoftresearch.com to obtain yours whilst they last."

I have no idea whether or not all 300 licenses have been given out yet.  I just requested one just in case they are still available.

I can not find any downloadlinks to KingSoft office 2007 anymore. Is the free distribution over now?

Could somebody do a review? It sounds very interesting. :)

Update: downloaded it. Opens very quickly and is light on it's feet in use. Is there anybody out there that fancies themselves a real Pro on MS Office that could put this Panda through its paces?

Hello,

I can not find any downloadlinks to KingSoft office 2007 anymore. Is the free distribution over now?

in August (no date mentioned) they were poised to launch a new version - KSO 2009 which will support .docx extension as well. in the meantime KSO 2007 will be repackaged as a totally free version.

Curt mentioned they were offering 300 free full unlock keys for the 2007 version on a first-come first-served basis. I asked for one last Thursday and got it. Might be worth a try.

Here's part of the e-mail they sent me:

Hi,

Thank you for your continuing interest in Kingsoft Office 2007.

Here at Kingsoft Research we’re grateful for your support and as such I
would like to provide you with a full working, full business or home
license serial key for your KSO product to help you spread the great news
that will change the way we work. Thank you.

Please tell your friends and colleagues about us and help spread the news.

Later this month, we are very excited about the forthcoming release of a
new version;

KSO09 will be initially available as a 100 day trial – please feel free to
download the tryout and let us know what you think.

KSO09 will be around 40 USD to buy, although an open license, totally
free, personal version of the software will be released at the beginning
August. Yes, totally free!

Just before you dive in and start creating documents;

I would like to tell you that we’re also working on support for the brand
new Microsoft and odf formats with .docx, .xlsx to be released in an
update late July, and .pptx following shortly thereafter with .odf.

So now there really is another option.

Here is your full working **serial key(s) for Kingsoft Office 2007...

 (key and install info followed)

- I am very surprised. Of course I asked for a license myself, when I posted the initial info about the giveaway, but I never received any answer! Well, it is not as if I would be missing a office product, I have plenty, but, you know: it was  free...

congrats with your free copy!  :up:

Heh, heh - Curt, we can add "free-itis" to the list of complexes shared by many DC'ers! Another that is mentioned here often is "upgrade-itis". This one is particularly bad (for me at least). Why, if I had a dollar for every app that I've upgraded despite there being nothing wrong with the current version... Hang on, I'd STILL be going broke  :o

EDIT: added a missing verb  :-[ Doh!

@ Darwin; I am a little eased to notice the "'d" between "I" and "STILL"...  ;)

---

It really seems that Office 2007 has left the Kingsoft site, though I find it very "funny" (strange) that they haven't updated their site to reflect the situation. But WPS 2007 (aka Kingsoft Office 2007) is yet to be found at several other sites, like C|NET, ZDNET, and others, and this one: http://kingsoft-offi...oftonic.com/download

I'll bet that in a relatively short period of time I will have upgraded to version 2009
- I registered version 2007 just ten minutes ago  8)
