4.0 out of 5 stars WordPerfect and Quattro Pro are also "Home Edition" June 14, 2006
I purchased this product needing to work on a personal legal (nonbusiness) matter, so the noncommercial license was fine for my "home" use. Good thing I checked with Corel after buying it and seeing the "Home Edition" captions not only on the total suite packaging but underneath the "WordPerfect" and "Quattro Pro" components (inside front box folding cover with velcro). Corel ultimately confirmed to me that "certain components that are designed for the business customer, such as Legal Tools, MetaData Removal, Document Compare, Quickfinder to name a few are not included in the Home Edition version." Corel needs to make this clearer in their marketing of the "Home Edition." I focused on the word processing application, but the Quattro Pro application is also captioned as "Home Edition" so it may be missing some features available in the Quattro Pro included in other Suite versions (Standard, Pro, Student/Teacher, etc.). The Home Edition may still be suitable for some users, but I'm a strong believer in "full disclosure." WordPerfect itself is a great program. Try setting point sizes with decimals in Word -- you can't. Try changing the size of the font in legal pleadings in Word -- there's no direct control of it (the Microsoft site instructs you to change margins and number of lines per page to attempt to get Word to adjust the font size) [but remember, you need any WordPerfect version other than Home Edition to get Legal Tools].

4.0 out of 5 stars Impressive July 11, 2006

I have been very pleased with Wordperfect X3. I have always thought that Microsoft Word was over-rated.

I would recommend Wordperfect X3 to anyone that is looking for an alternative to Word.

4.0 out of 5 stars Word Perfect is almost perfect February 13, 2007
By Peter S

This version of WP is as good as its predecessors, and the conversion programs are better. Make it your default app for Word docs.

There is only one problem I have come across so far. If you set Select mode to WP 9, it is still buggy; it takes some effort to select the text you want. You can always set the mode to the earlier version.

I have always liked WordPerfect better than word. My edition was getting old so I picked up this new one. It is a bit different but easy to navigate and has some great updates. I would recommend it for anyone needing lots or word processing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Word processor and spreadsheet OK December 6, 2006
The best part of the whole program is WordPerfect word processor and Quattropro the spreadsheet. The rest of the program is not worth anthing. I loaded the complete program and then uninstalled everything except the above.
