Pros: Leading word processor and suite until management bet the company on OS/2 and allowed Microsoft to take over the Windows market; extremely powerful; includes Quattro Pro spreadsheet; offers Standard, Professional, Home and Student, and Legal versions; leading specialized suite in the legal area.
Cons: Priced under MS Office but higher than alternatives; look and feel not engineered to copy Microsoft but has followed Redmond’s internal improvements over the years.
Compatibility: Uses conversion utility to import and export Microsoft file formats; formatting and other features don’t always convert cleanly.
Pricing: Standard edition currently $219.99 (MSRP $249.99).
Bottom Line: Powerful suite with tools equal to or better than those from Microsoft; best for companies that work only with MS Office files occasionally; has a partner program.
