The Register: Cowpland sees share price upside for CorelFeb 28, 2000, 17:01 (1 Talkback[s])

"Corel has made remarkable if rocky progress from the days when it was best known as a graphics package vendor to its present position with the WordPerfect office suite, which it acquired from Novell in a fire sale, and now Inprise/Borland and its tools."
"However, Corel's most successful move, and one that cost very little, has been to Linux - at least Corel shareholders think so, since it was this that made the Borland deal possible by driving up the share price. The Linux version of Corel's Office suite is in its second beta and should start being distributed in April - and it will include Paradox for Linux."
"The big announcement is that Delphi for Linux - a product much requested by developers and codenamed Kylix - is expected to be ready in September: at the moment it is approaching the first beta, Cowpland said. J-Builder for Linux will also be produced. The Borland merger will present some cultural problems between the Canadians and the Californians, but Cowpland said there was no expectation of moving everyone to Ottawa, as eventually happened with WordPerfect."
