The long quest for at least a rich text format word processor that would allow interoperability between linux and windows systems.

I think you had it correct the first time with the product key.
That key is your key and no one else's!

Softmaker requires a key, and it is assigned to each person, as their own key. Exclamation

I do wonder if they are using the information you have to give them to get a key, as a way to make some money. Idea
Personal info is money to the right people!


Since this thread has revived... Quite some time ago, I registered for a key (since they said it supported Linux).

I never got around to installing it yet (I just wanted to play with it), but I get periodic emails from them offering various enhanced packages and fonts, and whizbang stuff. I assume that they make money by selling these enhanced products. And that's a fine model - the free version being more limited in some manner (most probably don't need the enhanced - and it's a free test drive, without the modern crippleware/expiring trial version game)

I downloaded and installed the .pet of free office from mike’s google drive page and I couldn’t get the program to run at all.
In the end I ended up downloading and installing the .deb file from the free office site and everything runs just fine.
However I’m still wondering if anyone else has had that problem or what I might of done wrong.

@ SolusUmbra:-

Hey, no problem. If the .deb package works, that's fine.

Use whatever works for you. There's no hard & fast rule about it.....and certainly no point is being so 'dogmatic' (Laughing) about it that you end up shooting yourself in the foot.

You wouldn't believe the combination of .pets, SFSs. .debs, AppImages, Electron apps, self-extracting scripts, etc., etc., that I have running throughout my own 'kennels'. Even a number of Windoze 'portables' running under WINE.....

There's no shame in running Windoze stuff alongside Linux stuff. Some Windoze stuff is better for the job than its Linux counterparts. The same goes for vice-versa. If it does what you want it to.....that's the whole point of the exercise. In a nutshell.
