I firmly believe that SoftMaker Office is the best and cheapest solution available out there, particularly for those of us who need both the Mobile and Windows versions.
Yes it is, but (at least outside the Mobile/Pocket PC world) a widely unknown one, too. When I told people about the Christmas promotion, the typical answer was: "Which office suite? Never heard about it."
Just like you, I gladly pay for upgrades, but I'm not annoyed about freebies because I want SoftMaker to survive and thrive for a long time coming. To do this, they have to extend their customer base and that means to get more publicity in the first place.
