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've been using Microsoft Office for a long time now, but never liked it all that much. I decided to try WordPerfect and it was the best decision I made software-wise.

When I was offered the chance to … more
When my latest edition of WordPerfect stopped working, I was almost a bit relieved as it had never fulfilled all the promises of flexibility. But when the offer for X5 came in my Vine account, I decided to give it one more try and I'm very pleased to say that it has far exceeded expectations. My very favorite option about X5 is that it opens with a dialogue box that asks me what mode I want to work in: this makes it so easy to move between platforms and since my other computers … more
