"Like many people, I had high expectations for Corel's Linux distribution. Fortunately, for me, I was, for the most part, pleased with what they devised. Corel Linux is based on the Debian Linux distribution and uses KDE for its desktop environment. The end result is a distribution with a solid base and a very nice, professional graphical environment to work in."

"The goal of this review is not, necessarily, to critique the inner workings of Corel Linux, but more to give a tour of the distribution, from install to basic usage. There are more than a few observations along the way, however, and I try to take it into perspective that this distribution is the one most targeted at people who are familiar with MS Windows. I'm most familiar with Redhat, Mandrake, and older versions of OpenLinux and Slackware (I started out on Slackware way back when), so my experience is colored by the use of those distributions."
