I believe I read somewhere that it was the law firm that MS had hired that was using WordPerfect.

A few years ago, most lawyers in the U.S. used WordPerfect, and they
really liked it. It had some features that were very suitable for the
law office. However, most of their corporate clients were using Word.
(Nobody ever got fired for buying Microsoft). Over time, law offices
began migrating to Word, not because they liked the program better,
but because they needed file compatibility with their clients. Now,
WordPerfect is all but an afterthought.

After one of one of the anti-trust cases, Microsoft received a large
document in WP format.  They had to go out and buy a copy of Word
Perfect, to read that document.  ;-)

I love it! I still use WordPerfect on occasion. It has some features that are not duplicated anywhere else, as far as I know, and it is somewhat more user-friendly than OO and LO. (Sorry, LInux guys!) I actually use OO and LO, but when I really
need to get down and dirty, WP is the place to be.
