"Software maker Corel and Conducent, which specializes in methods to deliver advertising to PC desktops, said Tuesday that they will place advertising-supported versions of Corel WordPerfect Suite 8 OEM on the desktops of millions of computers at no charge."
"Before a user starts working on the application, the software will display ads for everything from database systems to books and records. Oracle, Zkey, Individual.com, and Columbia House are among the initial advertising sponsors, Corel said."
"But no one will be bombarded by ads while working in WordPerfect. The ads disappear once work starts."
