WordPerfect is impressive. The performance is pretty good as well (we'll test when they ship). I'm worried a lot about this since the retail Corel purchasers are totally buying the suite for WP (they stil leven have a stand-alone WP setup on the CD along with the suite setup) ..

The HTML-mode is also interesting. We do hope to avoid that modal state, but it does resonate ..

They definitly got a lot done given how small their R&D team is. More than I would have expected.
