"Corel's WordPerfect Office 2000 made its way into stores on
Saturday. Inside the new suite you'll find the familiar assemblage
of tools: a word processing program, spreadsheet, and presentation
software, to name a few. But there's one thing that sets this
package apart from previous versions of Corel's office suites--this
one runs on Linux."
"The Standard version of WordPerfect Office for Linux sells for
$109 and includes WordPerfect 9, Quattro Pro 9, Corel Presentations
9, CorelCentral 9, Netscape Navigator, Adobe Acrobat Reader, 1,200
clip art images, a clip art manual, and a user guide, plus 30-day
"Corel utilizes the Wine system libraries (which provide
Windows compatibility) to make the hybrid code run. Wine often
slows down an application, and Corel says Wine slows the suite by 5
to 7 percent, but I didn't notice a difference."
