I've tried WordPerfect on Linux, and it's a fine package. It does suffer
from two problems, though: It isn't on enough clients' machines to take
Word's place in our shop; and it doesn't offer Frame's power at the upper
end. We can't in good conscience tell clients that we can "do" Word when
we're actually using WP.

Actually, it's a tossup which is a stronger app, WP on Linux or StarOffice.
For true geeks, StarOffice is Open Source, which makes it very popular in
some circles.
