Once upon a time, the Corel office suite was damn good, and Wordperfect was the program of choice if you wanted cross-platform compatibility -- nothing else I know of even came close.
Then came the Redmond beast with all the back-room marketing deals, and another excellent product was ( nearly ) extinguished. To this day I consider the Wordperfect user interface superior to anything out of Micro$lop --- by a LONG WAY.
Isn't that more of a liability than an asset, given the number of free alternatives?

Also, narry a ribbon interface on either of them. I think the current versions for both are X4 or X5 (aka 14 or 15).
WordPerfect is the one true god.

I still have a boxed copy of Corel Linux. Ahh nostalgia.
