Choosing an office software can be a tough job because the software you might pick will condition the way your work in a daily manner. The choice users now have is rather limited. The time when Lotus, Microsoft and WordPerfect were struggling is over. There are two survivors: Microsoft Office or Corel WordPerfect. Both suites offer the same level of features but with a radically different approach. Since Corel has bought WordPerfect, the Canadian company has cultivated the differences that made WordPerfect a success throughout the different versions. Corel WordPerfect Office 2002 comes with WordPerfect 10, Quattro Pro 10, Corel Presentations 10 and Corel Central 10. Quattro Pro, the spreadsheet software of the suite is the “jewel software” of Borland that was sold to Corel years ago.


   Corel WordPerfect Office 2002 Standard Edition comes on 3 CDs. As always with Corel, the setup of the suite is very complete and can be customized easily. You can select from the setup, each single component you want (or not) to install. Once everything is customized the setup of the whole suite will take some time to complete due to the huge number of files there is to copy. When the setup is done you’re invited to reboot your computer.
