"Corel has produced what is probably the easiest version of Linux to get up and running. With just a little knowledge of the workings of a PC it is possible to sit down and have a fully functional system in about twenty minutes."

"It is, therefore, well suited to someone who has heard a bit about this new wonder OS and wants to give it a go, or a cost-conscious network manager who wants to roll out a version of UNIX with an easy to learn GUI. There is a significant amount for the user to learn, but not really any more than a new Windows user would face."

"Expert Linux jockeys may find Corel a touch dumbed down for their tastes, but they are not really the intended audience. This in many ways is the beauty of Linux - if you want simplicity and GUI knobs and bells then Corel is for you, but if you want hardcore command line options then there are plenty of other distributions out there to satisfy your needs, too."
