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.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
