Features, Office Corel made a play for a piece of the Web 2.0 pie on Tuesday, releasing WordPerfect Lightning in beta, a free, compact version of its standard word processing suite that combines both online and offline functionality. The company is referring to the product as a Google Writely, Adobe Reader, and Microsoft OneNote competitor rolled into one. At 16MB, the entire program can be placed on a USB stick or burned to CD to allow for maximum portability.

this app is so sad...

It doesn't even deserve the WordPerfect name. I'm sorry, but Corel may have already struck out before even releasing the product this time.

I've been using versions of WordPerfect from the 5.1 days (yep, that would be the DOS version), and this product wasn't worth the bandwidth I spent downloading it ;)

Exactly. I have been using WP for just as long, and it took me a grand total of 50 seconds to uninstall it.
