5.0 out of 5 stars Wordpro is the best! December 9, 2003
I have used Wordpro since it was Amipro in the early 90's. I also use MS Word because so many documents come to me in that format.
I much prefer Wordpro. In many ways, most prominently graphics handling and layout, and ease of text formatting, Wordpro is the better program.
This is another example of the better product being outdone by better marketing. Try Wordpro -- you'll never go back to Word.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Office Product ... Poor ommission October 11, 2004
Verified Purchase
Smart Suite millenium edition is quite a good office product; I have used it as a backup for MS OFFICE, when some files will not open in MS OFFICE, or if they fail, SMART SUITE will open them, or ... and this is the best of it... it will actually repair corrupted MS EXCEL and MS WORD files... it seems to restore the template.
The biggest, and silliest ommission is LOTUS NOTES ,which is not on SMART SUITE 9.8 .... the original Smart Suite Millenium edition had the NOTES App in it, and losing a key product in the Suite is such a disaster.

As always, the Organiser works Beautifully... possibly the best PIM this side of a Palm Pilot.

The best bonus is that the basic apps will run from the DISC alone. You do not need to install this suite to use the SmartSuite basics, like wordpro etc... you can run this amazing product straight from the Disc !!! Can MS Office do that ??

5.0 out of 5 stars Lotus Smartsuite Works with 64bit Windows 7 December 19, 2012
By Jimmy22
Verified Purchase
I refreshed a users computer to an i7 processor and 64 bit Windows 7. User has a Lotus Approach application that is a business requirement. The version I installed on the 32 bit XP machine would not install on the 64 bit Windows 7 machine. With nothing to loose and everything to gain I ordered the 9.8.2 version of Lotus Smart Suite. It arrived in a few days and it installs with no problems and runs the database without any problems.

5.0 out of 5 stars So Much Better Than Microsoft August 3, 2005
These programs are so far superior to MS Office it isn't funny. I used to try to struggle with "Word" because, well ya have to, but now i just set my system to open Word files with WordPro & I can edit save & send the unenlightened thier files without having to use the stupid program. I find it very sad that such a beautifully intuitive set of programs such as this is left behind while the bloated & ridiculously complicated MS Office wins the day. But as was said, that's marketing for you. Lotus Notes would be an obvious choice to keep with it though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lotus smartsuite an excellent choice September 4, 2005
Lotus smartsuite is written in very tight code, and will run on very low powered computers!

I noticed that some of the reviews mention Notes, which is a particularly powerful business tool. So powerful, Microsoft decided recently to hire one of the key architects of Notes, so they could come up with their own version!

Scalable, powerful! smartsuite is a full blown business tool for office and home. In fact, if you were to go on the IBM campus, the official office sute IS smartsuite! Smartsuite can be ported to the largest mainframe computers, as well as the slowest desktop. Yes Smartsuite will run without a glitch on a 300mhz system with 64 megs of memory... and NOT dog down!

Their macros are not compromised with viruses.

Smartsuite had voice recognition 4 years before microsoft began to put it in their product.

The weak link in smartsuite is their web designing tool. It will design a very simple website.

I just wonder why IBM has not been more proactive in the continued development of this bellmark software product, and why it does not have a huge market share.

Microsoft office is a world class product. But, if you are on a budget with a small computer, and need an office suite that works and works without crashing... smartsuite is an excellent choice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Installs onto Win 7 without any problems... January 11, 2013
Verified Purchase
Had upgraded an office computer to Windows 7 and the old machine had SmartSuite 97 installed and a ton of *.123 files. SmartSuite 97 will not work on Windows 7 (at least not without giving you a significant headache) and when I heard that SmartSuite MIL edition worked I thought $30 was a bargain for a headache free usage of Lotus Smartsuite on Windwos 7 - really a no brainer if you ask me!

5.0 out of 5 stars Solves my problem September 20, 2011
Verified Purchase
I have many old Lotus 123 files which I could not open in Excel 2003 or 2010. The only way I have found to convert the .123 files is to save them under Lotus 123 as .xls files, then open the new files in Excel. This version of Lotus SmartSuite works in Windows XP but not Win 7 Home Premium/64 bit. It does work in XP Mode of Win 7 Pro/64. It solves my problem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest office app ever August 1, 2013
Verified Purchase
I was introduced to Lotus 123 in the eighties. Subsequently I started using the Smart Suite combo.
Tried Microsoft's Office, did not like the product nor the hefty price.
My company operations are based on a multidude of interconnected Approach data bases, interfaced with applications on spreadsheets. Today I find myself in the dilema of facing a future with Windows OS which will not support my syatems. I'm using it in a network of PCs, connected to a server, and it works beautifully on Windows XP and Windows 7. It is a pity that IBM will abandon its faithfull long time users discontinuing this product. At least, they could leave with a version fitted for Windows 8.
How could the mighty IBM let MS run over its best product ever?
