"Corel WordPerfect 9 for Linux comes with everything you would
find in the equivalent product for Windows, including support for
exporting PDFs. The HTML editor included is very mature as far as
HTML editors under Linux go, and this version does not suffer from
the same problems in dealing with line graphics in your document
that Version 8 did. I imported several complex documents that I
work with regularly into WordPerfect 9 and it had no trouble with
any of them. Furthermore, the software seemed very stable and I was
not treated to a single freeze-up or crash."
"Quattro Pro is a powerful spreadsheet program. I have used it
for doing network traffic analysis and baseline reports for my
clients in its Windows form, including extensive graphing of
network trends. ... With Corel Presentations 9 it's ridiculously
easy to create a slide presentation. It supports features such as
HTML publishing, and simple bitmap editing (in case you are
allergic to The Gimp). ... In all fairness, you can't become a
Paradox 9 expert overnight, so I might be being too harsh on it.
However, to really do this right, Corel needs to take a good hard
long look at the Linux community and at least try to support what
is already out there with their products in a more seamless manner.
ODBC drivers should be included to support PostgreSQL and MySQL at
"SUMMARY Good first try. There are areas that Corel needs to work on -
they're going to have to find some way internally of both
supporting the Linux marketplace in an intelligent manner, as well
as keeping their code portable. This may mean having a group
of individuals at Corel who's sole purpose it is to develop
Linux-specific components for their major applications and some
standard way in their apps of hooking these in. I'm not
disappointed by their Wine emulation work. I think they've done a
nice job and they should be commended for it. The applications are
beautiful, functional, and stable."
