"Corel Corp. said yesterday that a decision to sell off its
Linux product line has nothing to do with a $135-million investment
by Microsoft Corp."
"The Ottawa software company was responding to a U.S. Justice
Department investigation into whether the world's biggest software
company's investment in the much smaller Corel could be considered
monopolistic or anticompetitive behaviour."
"The Linux decision was made based on strong business
principles and the best interests of Corel Corp.," Corel
spokeswoman Catherine Hughes says."
"We determined there were certain areas of business that no
longer made sense."
