For those of use looking for an alternative to some of the Microsoft Office products would do well to look at Corel WordPErfect OFfice X3 (part number WPX3STDENGPC). There's software for word processing (and some might say much more manageable than Microsoft Word), editing spreadsheets, doing slide shows ala PowerPoint, and more. And for only $17.95!
And it has complete suppy for the Adobe Acrobat PDF format. And it can import PDFs. How about them apples?
But what about all your Micrsoft Office docs? What about the Microsoft Office documents folks are always emailing you? It's easy to open, edit and save Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files. So you can work with all your Microsoft Office documents (and save 'em as PDFs), you can save your WordPerfect documents in Microsoft Word, Excel or PowerPoint format to send to colleagues . . . and you get it all at a bargain price.
You really can't beat it. If Corel had done a better job of marketing WordPerfect Office over the years, it'd be on a lot more desktops . . . and it probably wouldn't be nearly such a bargain. Because it's easy to use, slimmer and lighter than Microsoft Office, with 99% of the power and value of Microsoft's product. I've used them both, and there are of course some handy things about using Microsoft Office on Windows, but there isn't a better value in productivity software out there than Corel's WordPerfect Office X3. Buy it today. We have it for only $17.95, or $15.95 a piece for orders of 20 or more.
And, while you are at it, take a look at some of our other bargains on 3rd party software.
