In its latest newsletter, Corel has once again confirmed the
widely-reported spinoff of its Linux division and announced the
availability of the second edition of Corel LINUX OS in French,
German, and International English versions.
Though the newsletter offered few new details about the sale of
Corel's Linux division, it did say "Corel is pursuing opportunities
to spin off its Linux distribution with the intention of retaining
an interest in the prospective company."
The company also anounced the availability of new versions of
Corel LINUX OS.
From the newsletter:
Corel LINUX OS Second Edition is now available in French, German and
International English language versions -- and today is the perfect
time to upgrade!

eligible to receive Corel LINUX OS Second Edition on CD for just £5.95
or equivalent, to cover the cost of shipping and handling. Simply call
