ThinkFree Office 3 is a suite of Microsoft Office compatible-applications. It includes word processing, spreadsheet and graphical presentation applications that let users create or edit their documents and files.

ThinkFree Office is a revolutionary software and is platform independent and compatible with Windows, Linux and Macintosh systems; enabling almost anyone to use it-no matter what operating system they're running.

Here are some key features of "ThinkFree Office":
Works 'WITH' Microsoft Office...

ThinkFree Office 3 is made-up of three applications: Write, Calc, and Show-none of which use proprietary file formats. Instead, all three of these applications use the same file formats as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint thus enabling extreme compatibility.

Because ThinkFree Office 3 is created using Java technology, it requires little porting to make the software run on different operating systems. In fact, a single code base is used to produce the software that runs on Windows, Macintosh and Linux. This platform independence also insures that the User Interface and the documents created using the application will appear the same way, to all users. This is something no other office software can claim.

...And Works 'LIKE' Microsoft Office

The ThinkFree Office 3 interface was designed to look, feel and behave like Microsoft Office. Thus users minimize their learning curves and can rest assured that their documents will look the same in ThinkFree Office 3 as they do in Microsoft® Office-no matter what editing features they use.

Runs on Windows, Mac and Linux

ThinkFree Office 3 was developed using Java technology, so it runs as well on Linux as it does on Windows or on Macintosh operating systems. Therefore if you're running Linux and using ThinkFree Office 3, you'll experience the same streamlined compatibility you would running another operating system.

Multi-language support

The editing and viewing of documents in 11 languages is fully enabled. Languages include English, Spanish, Italian, German, French, Chinese, and Japanese. Support for more languages is under development along with translated menus, dialog boxes and users guides.

Reduced Cost of Ownership

ThinkFree Office 3 helps reduce Total Cost of Ownership for companies and other organizations in two ways. Firstly, the per-user license is much more affordable. And secondly, when ThinkFree Office 3 is hosted on corporate intranet servers, the software is launched from the server to the user's desktop via a Web browser. This eliminates the cost involved with installing and maintaining software on individual desktops.
