This is Corel's latest release of WordPerfect office applications, ready for Windows 7 and compatible with current Microsoft Office files. WordPerfect is a mainstay of the wordprocessing market - it's the 1st wordprocessing software I ever used, back in the pre-Windows MS-DOS days. Things have changed a lot since then and Microsoft Word/MS Office have dominated the market, in part due to MS having its software installed by most PC manufacturers. Since Corel, the graphics powerhouse, obtained WordPerfect they have done a nice job keeping up with MS Office and integrating valuable features into the software. There are many more features than I will ever use, yet for those who need the features they are present. This software can easily convert any MS Word format as well as spreadsheet and presentation files. This is an excellent program to have for recent computer models. For those on a budget who don't need all the latest features and just want basic functionality for their office suite there is the OpenOffice suite available for free as an online download from Sun MicroSystems. I've found OpenOffice to work pretty well, though it's had some bugs with conversion of certain files and WordPerfect Office X5 seems more refined. If you are looking for optimal quality with advanced features WP Office X5 appears to be a great option for PC users in 2010. Of course, by 2012 the PC world may be ready for something even more advanced.

Way back-in-the-day I used WordPerfect as it was the software used by lawyers offices and small publishers. Then somehow it dropped from my radar as the places I worked at fell into the MSWord rut and I did too. (Don't ask me about WangWord and Norsk-data!) Still memories of WP's strengths lingered in my mind so when I had the opportunity to try it again, I went for it.    Now these days I'm a mom-of-all-trades so I no longer am a power-user, but I can tell you what my daughter …

I felt like a kid in a candy store with this program, the massive library of fonts, clip art ( 8000!) and templates made me want to sit in front of my computer and play all day long. Whether is resumes or labels, or making spreadsheets of any kind, this program has everything, it's so cool and fun it makes me want to write books just so that I could use it every day. I also love how it's compatible with so many types of documents that I can't imagine have to open a file that cannot be accessed through …

Let's start off with the bottom line:     If you're using version X3 or below, you absolutely want to upgrade to X5. You'll gain some great new features.    If you're using X4 there's no urgent reason to upgrade. Yes, X5 has some new and useful features, but the upgrade will yield more of a "that's nice" reaction rather than a "wow!" reaction.    If you're using Word, Open Docs or something else, don't work in a law office or need to do …
