Kingsoft Writer Free 2012
Kingsoft Writer Free 2012 is an impressive free word processor

Microsoft Word may well be the word processor that first springs to mind when thinking about office software, but there are plenty of alternatives to choose from. There is a growing number of free word processor available, and Kingsoft Writer Free 2012 is one such tool. For anyone that is familiar with Word, Writer is instantly recognisable and incredibly easy to use.

For day to day tasks, there are all of the usual formatting and styling options you would expect, and support for a wide range of popular file formats means that it is easy to slot the software into an existing workflow. The ability to save your documents as PDF files is a seriously useful option and there are a plethora of clipart images available to brighten up your documents.

When used in the office, or for work purposes, Writer includes a mail merge feature that can be used to quickly and easily create personalised letters and envelopes. There are also tools on hand that make it easy to create and adjust tables and the equation editor can be used to perform complex calculations with ease.

To help automate common tasks, you have the ability to create macros, and if you’re having trouble getting started, there are a range of templates to choose from. The fact that Kingsoft Writer is available completely free of charge, coupled with the fact that it includes pretty much everything you could ask for from Microsoft Word, it is well worth trying if you are in the market for a new word processor.

Verdict:

A competent word processor that is far more powerful and usable than many of the other free alternatives to Microsoft Word.

Unreal Engine 4.7.2.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."
