"Bitstream...and Corel...announced today that Corel has licensed a Linux(r) font server currently being developed by Bitstream. Corel will integrate this font server into the office and graphics suites that it is currently developing for Linux."

"Bitstream's new Linux font server can render PostScript(r) Type 1 fonts, in addition to TrueType(r) and other industry standard font formats. It also succeeds at making fonts on the Linux OS user friendly by providing robust and intuitive font management that is comparable to what is currently available for the Windows(r) or Macintosh(r) operating systems. The new Bitstream(r) technology will help the Linux platform overcome one of its most significant barriers to acceptance in the desktop market."

"Corel recently released its first Linux operating system, Corel(r)LINUX(r) OS and is currently developing office and graphics suitesfor Linux. Corel(r) WordPerfect(r) 8 for Linux(r) has been hugely successful as a free download: the office suite for Linux will be available in early 2000. The CorelDRAW(r) graphics suite for Linuxwill be available in the summer of 2000. Corel is currently integrating the Bitstream font server into both of these suites."
