  3. Well, I didn’t install it. It was reported to “call home” a lot plus it doesn’t uninstall cleanly… “Even using “Your Uninstaller” software, the Kingsoft suite could not be fully eradicated. Hence I continued to have the language selection changing from US English, to UK English, to Canadian French. Truly a nightmare.” Giveaway of the Day – free licensed software daily – Kingsoft Writer Standard 2012 Plus it was given away somewhere else recently..can’t remember where.

    I use LibreOffice, Metapad and mostly Evernote.
