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: BoxPlatform 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.

I have been using WordPerfect since version 4.2. Unlike MS, the older versions can still open files created by the newer ones. It is much more intuitive than MS Word, and also easier to set up and configure.

The reveal codes feature has been there forever, which makes formatting a document a breeze.

Access Method: BoxPlatform for Display: PC Disc Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I received this product through the Amazon Vine program. I've used WordPerfect once or twice before, used OpenOffice (free online) and Microsoft Word for years. About the time the package arrived from Amazon my Word program began to act very glitchy. Almost like it knew it was about to be replaced.

Installing WordPerfect Office X5 Home and Student was a breeze on my Vista 64-bit machine. When I opened it up I was thrilled to see that not only could I work in a format that looks very much like the Word format I'm used to, but I could easily save my work in Word format. So much for MS Word! I removed Word from my PC and now use WordPerfect exclusively.

This software contains some great features including Quattro Pro (similar to Excel) and Presentations (similar to Powerpoint). PerfectExpert allows you to do 100's of things with the software package including things for teachers and students like grading sheets, school budgets, exam builders, book reports and teaching/training slide shows. It also has items found in programs like MS Publisher and Works such as household budgets, brochures, business cards, correspondence templates, awards, moving checklists, and monthly calendars.

Installs on up to 3 PC's... Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7 (32 or 64 bit programs) compatible. Includes thousands of clip art images, hundreds of templates and fonts, and over 175 digital photos to use for various projects. Address book and contacts manager, Presentations Graphics - drawing application, and WordPerfect OfficeReady template browser. PDF tools and over 60 file types allows you to open almost any file type using this program. Gather info, images and ideas from the Web, email and documents to store in your digital notebook.
