Access Method:Box| Platform for Display:PC Disc|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Length: 1:30 Mins
Recently, I was discussing the merits of softwares that we use whether Windows, Mac or both. The discussion then turned to a company that I've had a surprising change of heart about, namely, Corel.

Corel, as many of us know, has made a dramatic turn around recently and, like WinZip 14.5, their office suite "WordPerfect X5 for Home & Student" is another dynamic software that, in my opinion, is not one that anyone should overlook. It is a legitimate alternative to Microsoft Office and the "free" alternatives I spoke about when reviewing MS Office 2008.

** Comparing WordPerfect X5 to MS Office and OpenOffice
***Cost
*** Conclusion

* Corel's WordPerfect X5 office suite for home and students is a tremendous value that is even suitable for most "big" businesses that don't need the accouterments of the professional version. Included are the four basic class of office software:

WORDPERFECT (for word processing, letterheads, brochures, etc.)
QUATTRO (for spreadsheets, home/ business budgets/ personal data entry)
PRESENTATIONS (for slideshows and displays)
LIGHTNING (for digital note taking, misc cut/ paste features, screen-capture)

Plus...
900 True Type Fonts
8000 clip art images
200 templates
175 digital photos
The Pocket Oxford English Dictionary
Address book and contact manager
"WordPerfect Office Ready" browser
Presentation graphics (a drawing application)
Plus training videos on the 3rd cd.

Before I get to comparing similar suites, there's also something that should be noted that is not listed in the brochure but is remarkable about this package.

Access Method:Box| Platform for Display:PC Disc|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
As a longtime PC user of WP, it's been frustrating to keep it at home; my work uses Microsoft. My PC had only WP installed, while my work ones have only Microsoft. This new version allows compatibility, a feature my old WP lacked. It also integrates Sharepoint and Thunderbird e-mail functions that Microsoft favors; it works with Microsoft Word 2007 also to convert files. (I am not sure how it works with Vista, as I do not have that program, but it does get along with Windows 7 and XP-- but I suspect not lower-level Microsoft versions if these still lurk on your PC.) It can be used on up to three PCs; I assume it can be deactivated from one and put on another if necessary?

The WP update does not look much different than Microsoft Word. A glance at it running looks about the same as its competitor. Yet, I have always favored my older WP for its simpler "feel," and its lack of forcing you into limits that a Microsoft word processor or program seems to do for me. I rely on a computer more for basic functions, so some of those in either WP or Microsoft might elude my awareness. Still, I like wide varieties of fonts (900 True Type, many non-Western), clip art, and the Pocket Oxford Dictionary (on a separate disk here).

The tutorial disk shows you the basics; PDF features for creating compatibly viewed files promise wide application, as does Quatro spreadsheet and editing of presentation slides (Power Point compatible, but somehow these files seem to offer wider variety than PP for options). Similarly, the Lightning feature, although not one I'd personally need, may be welcome for those wanting to work across programs that are Microsoft-based while extending the flexibility that WP provides. A

I welcome competition for Microsoft.

Access Method:Box| Platform for Display:PC Disc|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
WordPerfect was my favorite software package way back in the DOS days of the late 80's. I used it to run a small law office, before I went to law school myself, and when I got out of school, it was the word processor of choice for the legal publisher that gave me my first job as a legal writer. Formatting documents was much easier for me in WordPerfect than it was in MS Word (except on a mac, which was easiest of all), and I loved the ability to save without all the meta data that explains everything everyone has ever done to a document.

This version of WordPerfect Office recalls all of those good experiences, and, yet, on balance I cannot give it a favorable review for two insurmountable reasons.

The first is that WordPerfect does not perfectly preserve formatting across conversions to and from the MS Office products. While this does not make it unusable, it certainly makes it a lot of work for me to revise documents - especially legal documents with very specific formatting requirements - that have to be generated, saved, and printed in MS Word at work. The WordPerfect suite is no better at preserving formatting than OpenOffice, which is free.

Which brings me to my second problem: price. The WordPerfect Office Home and Student Edition is nearly as expensive as the student version of the Microsoft product, which does preserve all formatting and makes it seamless to work at home on documents created at work. I cannot see formatting, reformatting, and then reformatting again just to save a small amount of money.

Finally, I haven't found a way to have the as-you-go spellcheck and grammar check run at the same time. It's one or the other. That's not a deal-breaker, but it's not super awesome, either.
