They refer to it themselves:
https://www.wps.com/linux

Scroll down to the Download section. :wink:

By the way: I strongly recommend *not* to install that WPS proprietary blob, but to stick to the excellent default LibreOffice.

that WPS Office is still an nice Office System,
- the only real issue, that I've got, is that it defaults to US_English - which is an nuisance to deal with ..
but - that just states, it's primary target area, more than anything else.

Why not? Not that I want WPS, being perfectly satisfied with LO, but I am curious about your reasons.

I'm with Pjotr on this one. Why would you want WPS Office suite when LibreOffice is readily available and better?

I did look at WPS Office some years back .... and the earlier incarnation when it was labelled Kingsoft Office. I was a little cautious about software developed by a Chinese firm, but what became really irritating was the persistence of adware.

Why? Given the current national security concerns about Huawei (both in the USA and in Europe), I think it's not unreasonable to have qualms about a closed-source Chinese office suite as well...

Never figured you for a racist. To say I'm disappointed is a huge understatement.

How is that different from the US? We shouldn't argue here how far they are from a ruthless dictatorship but there's no doubt that everything else you said about China applies to them as well. Or rather, regarding China we are just suspecting it, yet regarding the US we already know.

Meh. As usual, it's about money. 5G is a multi-billion dollar market and Huawei is the technology leader.
