"Corel said it agreed to 'settle certain legal issues' between the two companies. Despite that, interim Corel chief executive Derek Burney said there had not been any legal action taken by Corel against Microsoft."
"However, after Microsoft lost the first round of its court battle with the U.S. Department of Justice and was deemed a monopoly, Corel was preparing to launch a case, according to sources close to Corel."
"Corel had gone as far as to ask several former employees if they would testify in the case. 'They said in the wake of the anti-trust thing, that they were looking to sue Microsoft,' said one former Corel executive who asked not to be named."
