I learned to use WordPerfect when it was part of Novell PerfectOffice and I still have the 3.5” floppies to provide it. I can go even further back to when MS DOS was the operating system and there was no GUI. Since that time I was introduced to Microsoft Office and as they say—the rest is history. In fact, Microsoft Office is so popular that Corel Office has tried to mimic the “ribbon” feature.
So, in the battle of the word processing products is it still Microsoft Word hands down or is WordPerfect making a comeback to reclaim its throne. You decide! And, let's not forget the open source series!
i still prefer ms word the best and second is open office-word. The format that I used at ms word are acceptable in many online writing sites. Very convenient
You are absolutely right. More writing sites accept MS Word as it is the word processing standard. As I mention even Word Perfect attempts to mimic the new ribbon concept and you can save your documents in Word 2007 (which by the way is my favorite!)
Now I know you get what you pay for but it certainly would be nice if MS Office had more discounts. That is the biggest and to me the ONLY con: price! Corel Office Suites do not include an email program. Nothing, in my opinion compares to Outlook for convenience and "looks."
Word Perfect is a program I've never used. Microsoft Office used to be my preferred software, but since I started using Open Office, I haven't looked back.
One of the best things about Open Office is that it's free, and it's also compatible with MS Office. Not sure about Word Perfect though.
I'm sticking with Open Office.
Word Perfect is not as widely used anymore except I've heard some law firms may use it. I remember when Open Office was introduced. I liked it at first but when I was able to get Microsoft Office I was happier. When the ribbon was introduced in Office 2007, I was thrilled. It made customizing my documents so much easier.
They have tried to made Word Perfect compatible with MS Word. It comes free with a lot of computers. However, I just bought a laptop and it had a full version of MS Office 2013. I like the look of the template selection, but Office 2007 is my favorite. I also had Ms Office 2010 on another laptop. It's okay but not great to me.
Open office wasn't bad, good for those who didn't have Microsoft word. I prefer Microsoft Word better.
I didn't know WordPerfect still existed. I think nowadays most people use either Word or Open Office.

I got accepted to a few websites that I can now write articles for. One of those places is Constant Content. Thankfully, I got approved after taking a short grammar test and submitting a 250 word sample (which IMO is short). Quite frankly, I was scared I got one of questions wrong because I said...
