"WordPerfect is the most venerable of the word processors we examined. A longstanding favorite of many, and still somewhat dominant in the legal community, it's lost ground against Microsoft Word in recent years in most corporate settings."

"WordPerfect is an outstanding package, packed with the sort of functionality that indicates it's a survivor of the Windows world's features wars. It was able to do everything we asked, plus some, with flexibility and ease."

"While there are some software design issues that kept our enthusiasm for the product muted, and some interface issues that will cause more experienced Linux users a moment's pause, it's still a quality product for any level of user. Those looking to deploy WordPerfect in an environment where technical support resources are thin may need to weigh the clear advantages in ease of transition against the occasional bad behavior we found on our test machine."
