"Corel wants to be a major player in the Linux world. To this end, it now offers Corel Linux OS Deluxe Edition, a Linux distribution tailored specifically to users of Microsoft Windows--and even the Mac. This distribution will appeal to many Windows 98 users because of its ease of installation and its Windows-like interface."

"Corel Linux will find unpartitioned space on your hard disk and let you install to that space. If your hard disk is a single partition, Install Express can't help; you'll have either to overwrite Windows or use a separate utility to partition the disk."

"This is an exceptionally strong distribution for Linux users familiar with Windows or for anyone who wants a Linux more oriented to desktops than to servers. Most users just want their software to work right out of the box, and Corel Linux OS Deluxe does this trick very well."
