SoftMaker Office 2008 for Linux now in public beta

(1/3) > >>

Since SoftMaker Office gets mentioned on this forum pretty regularly, I would like to inform you that SoftMaker Office 2008 for Linux is now in public beta.

It comes with TextMaker 2008, PlanMaker 2008, and SoftMaker Presentations 2008.

You can download the free beta version from

Haven't tried the Linux version, but this is a great office suite!

Looking forward to Datamaker ;)

Yes! Me too...

We are busy working on it. Hopefully we'll at least have the private beta soon...

+1 for enthusiastic expectations for DataMaker.

What SoftMaker has done with the rest of the suite has been remarkable: stable, easy-to-use, solid competitor to MS Office, yet not a copy. I wonder how similar DataMaker will be to Access. I feel like Access is weighed down by a ton of backwards compatibility issues, and that if DataMaker doesn't try to emulate Access but starts from a clean slate, they could wind up with a really compelling product.
