Another thought: WP8 *can* run on 12.04. As I understand the process, you have to first install WP for Linux on Ubuntu 8.04.4 first.

Or 8.1 on 10.04

You then have to copy the relevant directories into 12.04. I haven't actually done any of this, but it is possible. There's a youtube video of someone running WordPerfect 8 on 12.04:

Why the poster didn't detail how he/she did it is a mystery. Canonical is developing a new packaging system, however, and I wonder if it would be possible for someone to "package" a WordPerfect for Linux installation -- sans license to keep it legal?
