OS\2 Warp instead of WordPerfect for high school. I would like to use OS\2 Warp in a high school computer lab. Warp contains a spreadsheet, word processor, database, internet software, and other features. It is also less than $100. To get a WordPerfect license would be 3 times this and would only include that. Does anyone know of another school considering this? Ideas?

Sounds like a good deal! You can probably get an educational discount from WordPerfect though, if you ask. And you can get both to use at the same time if you really want. It might be good to get at least one WP license in case somebody really needs to use it for something.
