WinZip 17 review

It's not easy being WinZip these days. Windows has been able to open and create Zip files on its own for a while now, and free, powerful compression utilities like 7-Zip are readily available and actively maintained. And yet, the 20 year-old utility soldiers on with version 17, delivering impressive utility and showing a keen awareness of the rapidly evolving cloud storage and file sharing landscape. New integration with cloud storage services and social networks gives WinZip a firm foothold in the online world. It's available in $50 Pro and $30 Standard versions, each with a twenty-one-day free trial.

Kingsoft Office Suite review

Business still revolves around the Big Three software applications: word processing, spreadsheets, and presentations. And Microsoft still charges an arm and a leg for Office licences. What's a cash-strapped small shop to do? There are, of course, a number of freebie alternatives to Microsoft Office, most notably OpenOffice.org and LibreOffice. However, OpenOffice faces an uncertain future, and LibreOffice is bogged down by a clumsy, outdated interface and iffy file compatibility. Allow me to suggest a lesser-known alternative: Kingsoft Office Suite 2012. Kingsoft offers Free, Standard, and Professional editions, the latter two priced at £31 and £45 respectively.
