Your new PC will probably come with a trial of Microsoft Office 365, but unless you’ve been gifted a license too, you’ll need a new office suite once the demo period ends.
The open source options LibreOffice and Apache OpenOffice are great, but for your shiny new PC we recommend WPS Office Free. It’s smart, slick, and features everything you need for working with text documents, spreadsheets and presentations. If you’ve ever used a modern version of Office then there’ll be no learning curve whatsoever; the ribbon-based interface will be instantly familiar.
WPS Office Free"s developer, Kingsoft Office Software, has thrown in some excellent PDF tools as well, plus 1GB free cloud storage for backing up and sharing your work.
You’ll see the occasional ad for the premium version of the suite, WPS Office, but they’re unobtrusive and never get between you and your work.
As per the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the job outlook for the Microsoft Office Specialist MOS is expected to see a 3% growth in opportunities from 2014 to 2024.
