"Corel is pushing hard to make Linux a more appealing environment for graphics designers."

"The company announced today that its CorelDraw and PhotoPaint graphics design software will be released by the end of June--two months earlier than expected. This and the company's acquisition of Painter and Kai's Power Tools software from MetaCreations yesterday raises the possibility that more Linux graphics software could be on the way...."

"But Corel recognizes the Linux graphics market isn't mature. "At this stage in the game, it's more of the graphics environment itself that Corel's looking to improve," a spokeswoman said. For example, Corel is working to get software to make sure scanners, printers and other peripherals work. "After that, the market will come," she said."
