LinuxPlanet: Word to the Wise… WordPerfect 9: Easing the Move from Word

[ Thanks to Kevin

“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.”
