China's Evermore Office suite takes off

,----[ Quote ]
| Evermore attributes the increased consumer interest in its office 
| productivity offering to a backlash against Microsoft's aggressive "black 
| screen" anti-piracy feature that the company launched on October 21st.   
| 
| [...]
| 
| Evermore Office 2009 reportedly sells to individual users for US$99, which is 
| much less than the cost of Microsoft Office. 
| 
| Then again, Open Office 3.0 implements the Open Document Format (ODF) 
| international standard, has both simplified and traditional Chinese language 
| versions, runs under either Windows or Linux, and is available for download 
| free of charge.
