Looks nice.
It has tabs! We all were missing that feature in office!

This looks nice. From reading a wiki about it, it *looks* like there are localized versions available, but the free version is available only in simplified Chinese. There is a trial download available... Might try it, though I've alreay got StarOffice 8, MS Office 2003 Pro, and SoftMaker Office 2006 installed...

Hmm... I've tried Maxthon, Firefox and Opera and neither the download link (for the trial) nor the purchase link (which I had hopes would enlighten me about the availability of an English language version) work. So, we'll have to leave it to one of our Chinese reading colleagues to assess its worth! From reading the wiki, it sounds really impressive.

Thanks for the tip, xbeta! If you could get me a link to the English version download, I'd be happy to spend some time with it and review it. Looks like EI Office, but then all these are starting to run together at this point.
