@ rockedge:-

Yah, I was looking at this on OMG!Ubuntu! the other day. Anybody wanting to try it will need to work fast. I believe the "free" trial expires on June 1st, doesn't it? Bit pointless me trying it, because if I do use their software it's usually FreeOffice; you'll not catch me paying for an office suite when there's so many free ones about.

What; d'you think I'm mad? Laughing Shocked Embarassed

The beta has had an update - and the expiry is now extended to the 15th June. At least, that's what I have now, for Win and Puppy (Deb) versions. I had signed up for the first round because I was really interested to check out the in-built Zotero bibliography tool integration. I and others have been bleating on the SoftMaker Forums for such integration for years now, and my initial impressions are *really* promising Smile
Certainly, a giant-killer when it comes to my previous experiences with Word+EndNote a few short years ago...

...oh, I'm one of the mad ones who is a card-carrying purchaser of SoftMaker 2019, 2017, 2015... the upgrade options are particularly cost-effective, according to the bats in my belfry...

I've got Softmaker 2018 (the paid-for version). I generally wait until the company has a special offer and get it then; I think for what I pay (usually about £18 ) it's good value for an office suite.

P.S. I'm currently testing the latest beta of Office 2021 (expires on June 15th) and so far I haven't found any problems with it.
