"Corel Corporation...is pleased to announce that it has entered the beta-testing phase for its desktop versionof the Linux operating system, Corel(r) LINUX(r)."

"For the beta-testing phase, Corel has recruited a sampling of the intended audience who will test Corel LINUX and provide feedback regarding their experience. This feedback may result in modifications to the product prior to the first public distribution, planned for the end of the year. Corel LINUX is based on the Debian/GNU distribution of the Linux OS and includes the K Desktop Environment (KDE). In its distribution, Corel has enhanced the graphical user interface (GUI) and created a new installation program that is much simpler than existing desktop PC operating systems."

"It gives us great pleasure to announce that we've reached this important milestone in the development of Corel LINUX," said Dr. Michael Cowpland, president and chief executive officer of Corel Corporation. "We're proud to again demonstrate our commitment to the Linux community by meeting the second of our targeted deadlines. After previewing Corel LINUX in August as planned, the beta-testing phase of Corel LINUX means that Linux is closer to the mainstream community than it's ever been before."
