Thread Name: Tech: Alternatives to Office and Word
Subject: RE: Tech: Alternatives to Office and Word
Our company standardized on Word Perfect and Lotus at the beginning of time. This was before the proliferation of Word and Excel in office PCs. I am interested in switching over to Word and Excel to minimize the conversions during emailing.

The big wrinkle with Lotus is that when we upgraded to Windows XP the scroll button stopped working. That is very irritating and will drive people into Excel unless Lotus fixes it. Also Excel graphics are can overlay multiple data sets on the same graph. No can do with Lotus. Most of the young people we hire out of college know Word and Excel but not WP or Lotus.
