"Another important aspect of Corel's Linux initiatives is our work with the open source community. Corel values the open source philosophy which is fundamental to the development of Linux. We are an active member of this community and plan to continue our involvement in the future."
"Corel has already gone to great lengths to demonstrate its support for the open source community. In January 2000, we established an open source development community Web site at opensource.corel.com. The site is a central location where members of the development community can access code. It also serves as a discussion forum through the use of development mailing lists and informs visitors about Corel's open source projects."
"We've taken great strides towards improving printing capabilities on Linux. Corel has considerable expertise in the development of desktop printing solutions. We've worked hard to perfect the printing experience for both amateurs and professionals using CorelDRAW and WordPerfect. We've leveraged that expertise to develop a printing library which enables applications running on Linux to easily "talk" to printers. In February 2000, we announced that we are hosting our open source application print services library on VA Linux Systems' SourceForge(tm), the world's largest open source development center, as well as at opensource.corel.com."
