Kingsoft WPS Office is a qt-based comprehensive office suite that provides you with the ability to perform a wide array of tasks related to the creation, editing and display of text documents, slideshows and data tables. This software package offers three distinct components, namely Kingsoft Writer, Kingsoft Presentation and Kingsoft Spreadsheets, each with their individual purpose and numerous functions.
Kingsoft WPS Office adopts a new and modern interface with many outstanding features such as a professional PDF converter, an advanced paragraph adjustment tool and intuitive table operation. Moreover, it has a greatly-improved compatibility with Microsoft Office both 2003 and 2007 formats compared to LibreOffice.
The initial work for porting this into FreeBSD is in progress

Q: Does Kingsoft office plan to support odf?
A: The current development team just don't have many developers to support odf. This post
has more information on that.
Q: Do the development team plan to provide 64-bit packages in the future?
A: Yes, they plan to provide x64 support. However their code is ported from windows using the old COM style so it's hard to support x64. Hopefully a x64-version will be released by the end of the year. But a definite time is hard to predict. This post
is the last news about x64 version.

A: KSO for Linux is not an independent product. The development team are also not an independent group. Meanwhile they can public some non-core code and resource, but the core component still property by Kingsoft Corporation Limited. See here
