"The switch from Windows to Linux just got a whole lot easier. Not only is Corel Office 2000 for Linux almost identical to its Windows counterpart, it comes with a free copy of the Corel Linux distribution, the easiest version of Linux we've seen. Of course, there's no demo version of the package for you to try before you buy, so if you want to try something free, go with StarOffice. Nonetheless, we think Corel Office's familiar interface and free OS make it worth the $159 price tag, especially if you're new to Linux...."

"WordPerfect for Windows users will feel right at home with WordPerfect Office for Linux. The suite has a distinctively Windows look and feel, and even includes fans' favorite features such as Reveal Codes, which lets you see and tweak formerly invisible formatting hidden in your documents. And if you're used to Microsoft Word for Windows, you'll appreciate WordPerfect's option of Word-style menus and toolbars (other Linux office suites, such as Applix's Applixware and Sun Microsystems' StarOffice for Linux, don't offer this.) Plus, WordPerfect for Linux even saves files in Microsoft Word format, so it's easy to share documents with Word for Windows users."
