There was a time, years ago, when WordPerfect was the leading and best selling word processing software, worldwide. Even Microsoft wanted to beat its supremacy. Remember the hidden Easter egg of Microsoft Word 2.0, where a monster destructed the WordPerfect icon! Since then times have changed and WordPerfect has encountered a lot of difficulties. It was bought by Novell and re-bought by Corel. Corel is maybe the best thing that happens to WordPerfect - since it brings WordPerfect to Corel’s touch. This new office software suite also comes with the old leading spreadsheet software named Quattro Pro. Quattro Pro was the “jewel software” of Borland that was sold to Corel. Along with some other new features, Corel brings these great applications together in this brand new suite. Is Corel WordPerfect Office 2000 Standard Edition worth the buy? Read and find out!

As always with Corel, the setup of Corel WordPerfect Office 2000 Voice Edition is very complete and can be customized easily. However we regret that the setup is so slow. Simply select in it, the components you want to install. A few minutes later you’re ready to work with this brand new software suite.
