2. When Orifice starts doing what WordPerfect does for me, maybe I'll get it.
Office won't even open documents made with older versions of itself.
My WordPerfect X5 opens documents going all the way back to WordPerfect 4.2 for DOS.

3. Office 2013 will open
...Word 97 to current.
16 years of backward compatibility seems pretty good for 99.9% of the population.
WordPerfect, and all of its owners over the years.. still doesn't fully support Unicode. Quite limiting in a business environment that deals with files outside of the US. Password protected documents are still a joke.
If you want to keep documents that long, I suggest saving in an RTF or PDF format.

7. Same here
Microsoft was always overpriced and had a clunky interface. I remember trying it once from floppy discs. I believe there were about 30 of them and the install program took a dive on number 29. WordPerfect used 4.
