The ThinkFree Corporation – developer of Java-based office-productivity application ThinkFree Office – has signed Computers Unlimited as its UK distributor, the company has announced.

The Java based suite makes use of the much-improved Java capacities of Mac OS X 10. The product is compatible with Microsoft Office, and offers word processing, spreadsheet and presentation graphics applications. It is capable of opening PowerPoint, Word and Excel documents, and can also save into these file formats.

Users also receive a one-year subscription to ThinkFree's CyberdrivePlus services. These let registered users access stored files and applications from any Internet-connected computer. Valid subscribers are also entitled to any software updates, which are available on the Web site, and unlimited email support. It costs £42.55.
