I like WP8 for linux, but think of it as a dead-end solution. Much like
WP5.1 for dos is/was good, but isn't going anywhere. Back in the WP5.x
days I believe there were unix versions. I would like liked to haved
used them, if for no other reason to see how they compared to the dos

The windoze or linux version?
The windoze version was slow and was a memory hog. It would crash often.
The VBA support that Corel put in to it worked poorly, wasn't well
documented. Trying to write a VBA program for WP2000 was much for
difficult than doing the same thing in Word. I settled into using the
old PerfectScript.

I only saw a few demos of the linux version. It was slow, it was a
memory hog, and it was buggy. Things worked and initially looked good,
but watching the program crash (this happened more than once) while the
salesman was giving a demo took away any confidence I had in the product.
