I would like to have a lighter weight suite for home use. Unfortunately this is not it.

First of all this is NOT a new program, nor is it a Corel developed one. It is a Corel re-branding of Ability Home Office with a couple of other programs thrown in. (Note the "Version 5.0.98.787" under Help/About.) It is also available from Corel as Corel Home Office with only Write, Calculate and Show.

Since it is a clone of AO, and not a true Corel product, WordPerfect and Quattro Pro are not supported (importable or exportable) formats. Surprisingly, it supports Ami Pro and Lotus Word Pro, but not Lotus 123.

By default the program loads with the ribbon interface. This severely limits the options available to the user. Click on "Options" on the top right side of the screen and choose "Toolbar Mode" and restart the program. Now you have the complete menus and access to many more commands. EVERY PROGRAM WITH THAT D*** RIBBON SHOULD HAVE THIS OPTION.

The Help file doesn't take the ribbon interface into account. I assume this is because AO doesn't have this option and Corel couldn't be bothered to update the Help file.

As a standalone program, it has some nice features, but is limited in what it can do. It also tends to be a bit too buggy for a V.5 program.

Write
Text Boxes: The only text box border is a single line. Other styles are available but do not work. If you insert a background texture into a text box and later change your mind, there is no way to delete it.

There is only one style of column called balanced columns. Unlike "newspaper" style columns, in which the left column fills up before starting on the right one, "balanced" columns have the same number of lines all the way down the page.

I'm a writer by trade and I've used Word since the days of DOS without any problems. I don't like Word Perfect, but I did try another version of the Corel word processing program not so long ago and it wasn't bad since it wasn't very difficult to make it emulate Word. But it wasn't a keeper.

This version of Corel Write is much nicer. It instantly came up and asked me if I wanted to switch Write to behave like Word, rather than if I wanted to convert my Word docs to WordPerfect). I liked that. It works seamlessly with my Word documents. I can switch back and forth between programs without thought.

I don't do a lot of fancy work in my word processing program. I mainly write books and the formatting is pretty basic. There's absolutely no difference between the pricier Microsoft program and Corel's less expensive one when it comes to manuscripts. Both are solid.

I do some artwork in Word for my mate's business. Eye-catching labels, things like that. I tried it out in Corel Write and, again, it was word perfect.

I see spreadsheet programs like Excel and Corel's clone, Calculate, as mildly magical. (Numbers frighten me.) I don't have a clue how create to create spreadsheets thought I do use one in our business. (Our accountant updates it for me.) Calculate worked just like Excel.

Show seems to be an adequate clone for Microsoft's Power Point, though I haven't created a show with it yet. I'll report back when I do.

While I didn't need the art programs included, I found I really like the simple photo editor; it's always nice to have a quick fix program handy. (Once I get into a real art program, I'm likely to lose track of time - I like that this helps keep me out of mischief.) Also, I've developed a fondness for Paint It!

There are actually 3 programs which came with the DVD :

- Corel Home Suite
- Paint it!
- Photo Album 7

Overall, the user interface is very good and the applications are quite easy to use right out of the box. The Corel Calculate and Corel Write programs each uses about 40 Mbyte of process memory which are actually quite efficient. However, the Corel Calculate program seems to have difficulties in opening large excel files (over 5 MByte in size) and the program was either very slow or just hang up. The Corel write works well with Microsoft word files. It comes with quite a few features such as Macros, Thesaurus, and Grammar checker. However, the Grammer checker seems to report grammatical errors which are actually correct.

The Paint it! program is pretty fun to use and it comes with a variety of paint brushes. It also works well with my Wacom tablet.

All in all, I would say this is a good buy if you are on a budget and do not need to work with sophisticated spreadsheets. If you are qualified for the student / academic versions of Microsoft Office, I would suggest to go for the latter.

There's a lot of functionality here, so I'll be trying out each program and updating my review as I go. Bear with me, please.

I've been using Microsoft Office since... well, since I was a tiny child (*cough*), so I'm going to look at this as an experienced Office user migrating to Corel (since that's really what I'm doing.) If you're new to word processing, spreadsheets, and/or presentations, you'll find this software to be more than adequate for most routine office tasks.

*** Corel Home Suite:
- The install was easy, except for the very blurry serial number. Corel, please print the Home Suite labels on the same printer or with the same font that you used for the image software serial number labels!

- Corel hasn't bundled any additional (unwanted) software with Home Suite--a definite plus.

- Microsoft Office file types aren't associated with Corel Office at install. If you want to do that, start Corel Office. You'll see buttons for Corel Write, Calculate, and Show, plus a "Change Now" button. Click "Change Now," and you'll register DOC, XLS, and PPT file types to Corel Write, Calculate, and Show. (Once that's done, if you double-click one of those types of files, it will open in the correct Corel program.)

Corel Home Suite summary: I've never been a fan of Corel products, but this is easy to use, it's had few problems importing files from Microsoft Office 2007, and by comparison it's a fantastic value for the money. Corel's got me hooked with this package.

*** Corel Write:
- The interface is not what I'm used to, but it's very easy to use.
