64 Bit Deb/Rpm Packages For WPS Office Have Been Released

WPS Office (also known as Kingsoft Office) is a freeware office suite having the same features as Microsoft Office (more of a Microsoft Office clone), installed by default on Ubuntu Kylin, the Ubuntu flavor developer for its Chinese users.

The main three software included in the WPS Office is the Kingsoft Writer, Presentation, and Kingsoft Spreadsheet, being alternatives to Word, Excel and PowerPoint.

While it has been available on Linux systems only as 32 bit (i386/i686) deb and rpm packages, 64 bit (amd64/x86_64) packages have been also created by the community, so that the users can install WPS office on 64 bit systems without having to install all the 32 bit dependencies.

Despite the fact that WPS Office is only an alpha release, it is already usable, permitting the users to benefit from the main features of a modern office suite.
