ThinkFree Releases Office for OS X on CD

Software reads, writes Microsoft Office file formats By Dave Nagel
ThinkFree has released its Office suite for Mac OS X on CD-ROM. The software, which provides alternatives to Microsoft Office applications, was previously available as a download. The new CD-ROM release is available for $49.95, with additional discounts also available.

ThinkFree Office features a Java-based word processor, spreadsheet and presentation graphics programs, including ThinkFree Write, ThinkFree Calc and ThinkFree Show. The software suite reads and writes Microsoft Office file formats. ThinkFree Office for Mac OS X features an office productivity suite that offers compatibility with the full Microsoft Office suite of applications, including Word, Excel and PowerPoint, according to ThinkFree.


The CD-ROM includes a non-expiring software license and a printed user guide, as well as a registration number, which can be redeemed for a one-year subscription to ThinkFree's CyberdrivePlus services. This subscription provides customers with a personal Cyberdrive, which is a secure Internet file storage system hosted by ThinkFree servers. CyberdrivePlus subscribers are also entitled to download the latest release of the software, including all upgrades for any supported computing platform, and receive unlimited email customer support.

ThinkFree Office is available now for $49.95, and there's a $10 rebate available for those who purchase the software at Fry's or Outpost.com. A free 30-day demo of the suite is also available. For more information, visit http://www.thinkfree.com.
