"Corel Corp. {CORL}, the maker of the once-dominant WordPerfect word-processing software, is hitching its wagon to the fast-rising Linux star."

"The Canadian company plans to release an easy-to-install version of the Linux operating system, called Corel Linux, early next year. The product drew rave reviews at a recent trade show in San Jose, Calif.
