Onlyoffice Desktop Editor on Linux Lite 4.0

Why Onlyoffice?

Well, to be honest, I don’t like the interface of LibreOffice nor OpenOffice. The other software such as Kingsoft Office (WPS Office) and Onlyoffice are way better than those two. I am not using office for complex calculation or complex document editing. That’s why the interface is very important for me. Onlyoffice has a simply great interface. The icon, tabs are well managed.
