3.0 out of 5 stars Functional, yet lackluster August 13, 2010
I'm a long-time WordPerfect user -- from way back in the WP4.2 version for DOS in the late '80s. I even taught WordPerfect classes at the local University back then -- including versions 5.0 and 5.1. WordPerfect has been -- and continues to be -- a superior product than the one offered by MicroSoft.

So why the so-so review (only 3 stars)?

Because it tries to be too much, appealing to MS-Office users and offering everything to everyone ... and no product can ever deliver on such promises.

Too many features. In trying to cover every potential office need, far too many choices are offered. One would wonder how business was conducted before the advent of office computers, let alone the 'Windows' desktops. It suffers from the same problem as the 'other' office suite from MicroSoft -- what they call 'feature bloat'.

Aside from the occasional 'Mail merge' and such necessities as PDF creation or importing dynamic spreadsheet fields into an automated memo, how many of the 'integrated' features do we really need? Nine-times out of ten, documents and presentations are simple things, printed or displayed for the end-reader. The rare time database or spreadsheet data is presented in a memo or slideshow -- nine-times out of ten, again, it's cut-and-pasted from the spreadsheet or database.

Is the integration of 'linked' data fields in the documents really necessary? Do you use it? Do you need it? If that's the case, then your office needs a better 'power' system than an off-the-shelf office suite from WordPerfect, MicroSoft, or even Oracle.

This office suite is overkill. The developers have lost sight of what end-users really need; instead, they offer what they 'think' people need based on what the marketing team at MS-Windows says.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Version ... getting too Word Like December 21, 2012

WordPerfect has always been a superior product when compared to Microsoft Word; however, they did not have the money to compete. Corel has done a good job with WordPerfect; however, they are adding a bit too much bloat. Keep WordPerfect fast and streamlined.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very pleased November 18, 2012
By mgross0

This was an excellent purchase. I have always hated MS Office, and WordPerfect is the solution for me. Allows me to work or open in Office when I absolutely have to, and use WP when I don't feel like getting ticked off with a fussy pain in the butt Microsoft program. If you can get this version cheap, I see no reason to buy the X6. For the average user, you would just be paying an extra $100 for a different package design.

4.0 out of 5 stars Satisfied September 17, 2012
Verified Purchase
As a long-standing WP user, there was not much of a learning curve or much really new in the word-processing package (which is the only element of the produce I use). I am somewhat surprised and disappointed that this version does not permit saving work to the open office writing format. Saving to rtf and opening the rtf file in open office is an ok work around, but I would think that, in light of WP's loss of market share, compatibility with other formats would be emphasized. WP is still the most efficient word processing software for any project that requires any but the most basic features.
