"Corel will launch its desktop version of the Linux operating system on Nov. 15, the opening day of the Comdex trade show in Las Vegas, company officials said here Monday..."

"Linux has been praised by industry observers both for its stability and for its strengths in networked computing environments. However, because most versions of the Unix-like operating system are hard to install and run compared with Windows, Linux's use on the desktop has been somewhat restricted so far."

"To help try and change the current situation, Corel has written a new install program designed to make Corel Linux easier to set up.
