WordPerfect Will Support OpenDocument... Someday

WordPerfect Will Support OpenDocument... Someday

"StarOffice 8 may be getting the lion's share of attention, but Corel insists that its WordPerfect Office is also a leading contender for office suites and that it will soon be supporting the OpenDocument format."

Why is this important? Well, back in the old DOS and Windows 3.1 days, WordPerfect was an excellent (perhaps even superior) "office suite." Unfortunately, WordPerfect was put on the auction block and sold a few times, causing them to lose their momentum. I personally would welcome another competitor back to the office suite arena. Sure WordPefect never actually left the arena, but they have not been taken seriously for quite sometime. I fully support OpenOffice, but we all know that competition is needed against Microsoft.
