"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 installation support...."

"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."
