Well WordPerfect Office 2000 Standard Edition gave us a good impression. The third following software: WordPerfect 9, Presentations 9, and Quattro Pro 9 offer great, unrivaled, unique and innovative features. However CorelCentral is almost useless and Trellix isn’t worthy of being included in that kind of suite. Also we regret that no database software is included in this suite. Corel Paradox 9 is available separately as stand-alone software or in WordPerfect 2000 Professional (only with corporate license program). Finally the fact that there are two Macro languages is a little bit disrupting! You can also use MS VBA or the Corel PerfectScript 9 programming language. So if you’re enthusiastic about the exclusive new features of WordPerfect 2000 you should probably buy it now.
