News; Microsoft office software
Jinshan last three years, spend tens of millions of, more than 500 lines of code to write all the WPS Office 2005 on September 12,, in Beijing officially unveiled. It is reported, this software first achieved with the Microsoft Office "deep compatible", and will run on Windows and Linux system, and even mainstream function and interface with Microsoft Office similar, it says that is the major technological breakthrough domestic software.
Earlier, compatibility problems have been domestic office software manufacturer is the last that challenge Microsoft obstacles, thus, the Chinese and foreign office software "war" comprehensive outbreaks.
However, to the surprise, the software version of the individual within one hundred days, can be in nearly web site free download the trial, and Microsoft hard struggle more than ten years of kingsoft, hope in this tough market action to establish domestic software in the public praise users.
"Based on our many years of experience, to disturb us problem is not the strength of the function, but the format and the use of user habits, we did this in order to satisfy the users in the use of habits of the demands of, this product design concept is to respect customer use." According to jinshan WPS Office 2005 and Microsoft Office similar question, jinshan company President lei jun said.
Since Microsoft office software in China, domestic software vendors will completely repeatedly fought and lost in the embarrassing position. Although the price low enough, function well, but the user is an unappreciative. Around a dozen years later, jinshan consciously comprehended the "bottleneck" is.
According to the reporter understands, as a national "863 project" one of projects for the development of WPS 2005, jinshan abandoned accumulate more than ten years of program structure, will be more than 500 lines of code all knocked down, the purpose is to realize and Microsoft Office "deep compatible", compatible involved in operation interface, the document format, use habits, second development interface and other aspects, and at the same time can read each other with Microsoft Office, so that users can "zero time" handcuffed. In addition, jinshan special will WPS 2005 compression to less than 20 million super small volume, and can also use cross-platform, the maximum range to expand the market space.
Jinshan vice President GeKe told a reporter, "we hope more use Microsoft piracy of users, through our $20 WPS become personal version authentic customer. Currently WPS Office 2005 pro price also is only 1/3 of Microsoft products to 1/4, also of considerable competitive."
But there are also, insiders point out that golden hill ten million yuan, and one hundred team made come out WPS can get market acceptance?
"In the future and the foreign office software competition, WPS into the mainstream market will." Kau pak kwan jinshan chairman said.
Now Microsoft Office almost all through the overwhelming majority person's desktop, not only is the replacement for outstanding performance and superior technology, the more the main is a habit to shape. Jinshan rely on what arouse people to WPS passion, don't carry a nation or?
Professional analysis thinks, the golden hill chooses is not generally compatible, but from the content to format the precise copy. The "permit spirit" has been greatly beyond previous software interface, file format of interlinked, really penetrate into the ground floor technology. The costs of doing so is, jinshan completely give up the WPS for many years to the development of the difference of the product ideas. But, the use of Linux after all is needed, the real users or under Windows, in this system, Microsoft's Office of obvious advantages. What can the WPS recognition, still need the test of time.
But, according to the reporter understands, jinshan should not only with Microsoft for the domestic market, WPS overseas strategic will also start in this year. Jinshan plan advanced army Japan market, with the aid of the Japanese subsidiary company founded in early this year, the power of first open Japan office software market, in the overseas market share of Microsoft fretting. Perhaps this is a good try.
