WordPerfect Gets New Life in Deal With 2 PC Makers:

The Corel Corporation of Canada, which acquired WordPerfect from Novell in 1996, announced deals in the last week with Hewlett-Packard and Dell Computer under which the two equipment manufacturers will install WordPerfect, as well as Corel's Quattro Pro spreadsheet software, in some of their consumer and small-business models.

Via Ray Schroeder.

I can't say enough about Word Perfect as a word processor. It beats Microsoft Word hands down — from every day letters to major projects.

Last year about this time, at work I did a 495 page complaint for filing in federal court. (Yeah, 495!) I straight typed the 40 page intro, then typed 26 counts with sub-counts against one defendant, and let WP 8.0 do the rest — creating the 26 counts and sub-counts for about 16 other defendants. The best thing was, my boss thought it would be a good idea to leave me alone for a about a week while I worked on this. Thing is, after the initial typing on my part, the rest took less than an hour. I spent the rest of the time perfecting my Minesweeper skills. Heh.
