I was searching for an alternative to MS Office and this site came up as one of the top searches (DDG).

https://allmacworld.com

They list a lot of software, all the premium stuff re: graphics, design, audio, 3D, Office, PDF, etc

Just looking for feedback from the more experienced members.

Well, let's see. It's a Web site that lists a lot of very expensive commercial software, and it offers you a free copy of all of them, all that you have to do is click on the provided links.

I have to say, that's just about the most suspicious looking Web site I've ever seen. :woah

My recommendation would be to stay FAR AWAY from that Web site. I can't imagine that anything good will come from it.

But if anyone is brave enough to give it a try, please let us know how things go.

If you'll allow me to channel my grandfather for a moment, I think the phrase "Too much candy for a dime" is appropriate here.

Have to agree with Randy. That site has all the markings of piracy. Best to stay away from it.

I have seen a scam like this, years ago, it's probably legit because what they make out of you fullfilling the seemingly simple conditions/qualifications far exceeds what you would pay by normal means.
It's a case of; if it sounds too good to be true, it's probably not true.

Have you tried iWork (Pages, Numbers, and Keynote)? It's free. I've also seen people recommend OpenOffice, I think. I personally have never looked beyond MS Office for Mac, as these apps have served me very well, so I can't really offer a review of these other alternatives.

As to the website, I would never download software from anywhere except the App Store or the developer's website.
