Word Not So Perfect

Novell Sues Microsoft

Novell sues Microsoft because they lost market share during the brief time they owned WordPerfect and Quattro Pro. Hey, Novell, I used WP 5.1 for DOS and loved it. I used 6.0 for Windows while you owned it and it sucked. That's why you lost market share. After Corel bought WP and released 7.0 for Windows, it was actually competitive with MS Word and I loved it. But Word got better and WP went nowhere.

Novell, you once made a great network operating system. You jumped in a market you had no business being in with a product that was not ready for prime time. Quit whining about what happened 10 years ago and either write some good software or shut your doors and go home.
