Is it worth downloading and using? Do any of you really like it after using it awhile?

Yes, I like it a lot and this is from one who served as a beta testor for the WP and PR programs for over 10 years. It perfomes quite well, and has handled everythign I thrown itss way with aplomb. I can HIGHLY recommed it!


I have not purchased it yet, but plan to shortly. It is of nominal cost,
and I like to support WordPerfect for Linux in any way possible, so that
Corel hopefully will continue to improve/expand upon it. To me, it is far
superior as a word processor, IMO. and I use Wordperfect professionally,
over all other word processors, so yes I prefer it. <g>
Codeweaver is supposed to come out with a wine version which supports WP,
but this has been on the drawing board for a very long time, and nothing
has been done to date, after almost a year, so my feeling is to go with
the source directly, which is Corel, now that they have updated WP8 for
Linux.
IF you want Codeweaver's to work on WordPerfect go to their site and vote for it. Right now it has less than 10 votes (when I checked last month) and according to the owner of Codeweavers it's unlikely that they will be working on WP unless it gets enough votes to be competitive with those products which have received votes in the hundreds. I pledged $$$$ support for the project in addition for voting for it, you can give it up to two votes, but it sems unlikely that it will be worked on unless we can muster up a LARGE number of additional votes.
