So Corel is having trouble, big deal.  Even such industry giants as Oracle
are having bad quarters.  It doesn't change the fact that UVM is still a
predominately Wordperfect shop.  The University either needs to provide the
funding to allow departments to switch over to "standard" applications, or
the University needs to continue to support Wordperfect.  I think Corel is
making a wise move to position themselves as the multilingual application
suite.

Simply changing the standards doesn't change anything.  You have to put
enough cash on the barrelhead to buy the software, upgrade equipment and
above all TRAIN EVERYBODY on the new standard suite.  We've done none of
the above.
