SoftMaker offers a complete line of free and paid office suite products that run on Android devices, Linux distros, and Windows or macOS PCs.

The article is well worth a looksee.

I think you'd do better with LibreOffice. I use it in Windows. It does have versions for linux and android. Though my Samsung android tablet came with Word and Excel and that's all my husband uses so I don't need to install an Office Suite.

I agree...
It really depends on your needs, but to me, LibreOffice is more than adequate.

IF you use an email client, Mozilla Thunderbird has a nice Appointment Calendar, and Task Scheduler. It may not have all the functions of "Outlook", but it's more than I need (a little while ago, it "beeped" and gave me a reminder about an appointment I have in two hours,)

Libreoffice is the way to go. I have never heard of that office suite before.

"Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. Progress in our world will be progress toward more pain." -George Orwell, 1984

I tried Softmaker (Windows computer) then they kept sending me emails. They want to move you up to a paid version.

I'd also recommend LibreOffice. Have used it for years on both Linux and Windows systems and have always been satisfied.

Personally I have used LibreOffice since it first came out in 2011. I only use the program a couple of times a year on average.  :th_1sm330office-work:

Same here. Usually I am sent PDF or uploads to my Google Docs, but a couple of times a year someone sends a .docx.
