Corel WordPerfect Office 12.0 Home Edition

CNET
8 November 2014
  • Summary: WordPerfect Office 12.0 Home Edition is designed for families, not businesses, and it's useful mainly to collect, edit, and burn digital images onto CDs or DVDs for personal use.
  • Pros: Abundant templates; backward compatible; WordPerfect simulates Word, and Quattro Pro simulates Excel in appearance.

Corel Home Office

CNET
21 September 2009
  • Summary: Despite some compatibility setbacks, Corel Home Office suite is useful for creating documents. Its conscientious size, small-screen optimizations, and attractive price make it a good buy for a Netbook office suite, or for saving space by shedding advanced features.
  • Pros: Small megabyte footprint, built-in PDF creation tools, and Flash installation work well on tiny Netbooks; Microsoft Office 2007-style interface; reads and saves documents in multiple file types, including Microsoft analogs; multilanguage support.
  • Cons: Often renders text differently than it should when pasting or importing content; lacks advanced features applicable to Netbooks users.

Corel Home Office

PC Magazine
27 June 2009
  • Conclusion: Corel Home Office is a Microsoft Office workalike for netbook and home users that's worth using for simple documents—but only if you switch the default file format to the Microsoft Office standard.
  • Pros: Included apps look and act like Microsoft Office counterparts; can be set to use Microsoft Office formats by default. Option to use traditional menu-and-toolbar interface or modern ribbon interface.
  • Cons: Too many bugs. Uses a proprietary default file format (which, fortunately, can be changed). Complex files imported from or saved to Microsoft Office formats have serious errors.

  • Summary: Despite not quite living up to the tailored-for-netbooks hype, Corel Home Office Suite is a worthy and more affordable alternative to Office 2007 for those who need only the basics.

REVIEW: Corel Home Office

BCW
20 August 2009
  • Summary: Features The suite consists of Wire, Calculate, and Show, handling word processing, spreadsheets, and presentations, respectively. You can choose to install the applications one at a time, or all of them in one go. Each application features relatively wide file format support (including Microsoft Office) and can export PDFs for easy sharing.

Good Gear Guide.au
27 June 2009
