FreeOffice is a fast and lightweight office suite with word processor, spreadsheet, and presentation tools. The interface supports themes, a dark mode, and classic or ribbon-style toolbars. All components include a wide variety of formatting, functions, and animation.

The program will import and export to standard Microsoft formats with reasonable fidelity. A pro version is also available with additional features (including 64-bit), as well as the previous version.

NOTE: The program will eventually require email registration, but a workaround is available.

As someone else reported a while back, I also get a 404 page not found error when I click on the "Download 32-bit" link (https://www.portablefreeware.com/download.php?dd=1463).

@opsimathic: a typo, probably (:), meant to be "portabilized"...

A very competent Portable Freeware Office.
Snappy and pleasant: loads quickly and works with agility.
Has to be probabilized after acquired but one can use its word processor, spreadsheet and presentation apps together or individually. Very reasonable compatibility with M$ Office, also OpenOffice and LibreOffice.

@aazard - could you move the really long posts to the forum topic. Also, I know there's no edit function but you can delete the old posts and repost with changes. Multiple comments like that are considered spamming.

*True portable version (via menu tool), does not contain the registration requirement of "install version"
