Basically, this is a matter of personal preference, so everybody will have his or her own reasons.
Reasons why I prefer SoftMaker Office over MS Office are:
- The programs have a very clear and logical UI: I find every function quickly, whereas in MS Office I'm always searching for something I cannot find.
- I am not forced to use those abominable ribbons (but I could if I would).
- Some functions are much better solved and easier to use than in MS Office, e. g. the handling of images.
- The programs start and run fast, even on older hardware.
- Support is free of charge for a limitless time and is responsive to bug reports and feature requests.
- There is no subscription scheme, I pay once (and much less than für MS Office).
- I love to support a small independent company that keeps close to its customers.

You can use our own dictionaries for spell checking, and the Hunspell dictionaries. Add-ons are currently not available.
