WordPerfect Lightning - free beta by Corel
« on: March 27, 2007, 09:03:40 PM »
Corel WordPerfect Lightning

Tag-line 1: Welcome to a new way of doing things.

Tag-line 2: It helps you perform your most common tasks simpler and faster!

Quote from: website
Corel WordPerfect Lightning is free software that makes it easier than ever to capture, use, and reuse ideas, information and images.

Corel WordPerfect Lightning is not a trial version. You will be downloading the free beta version of Corel WordPerfect Lightning, which includes:
   a Notes tool for word processing, note taking and copying text and images from email and the Web
   a Viewer to open PDFs, WordPerfect and Microsoft® Word documents
   a Navigator to organize your ideas and documents
   a free online account with 200 MB storage—plus many more services!

website mentions low system requirements, P3, 256MB RAM, etc.. but you need to register first to be able to download.. might to try on a low-end machine..

I tried it a few weeks back after one of my users told me about and was left seriously unimpressed FWIW. I'd certainly be interested in what DC'ers think.

Its great that big companies are able to garner so much coverage and interest it whatever the do, while us small independent developers struggle to get the slightest mention anywhere. Such is life.

I tried this and ditched it instantly. No global search?  :down:

the setup program is determined not to install on my machine.. saves me the trouble of uninstalling, i guess depending on the response so far.. ;) one would have thought that Corel at last had gotten their act together but seems not..
