Globe and Mail (Canada): Corel talks threaten Microsoft: analysts

“Linux discussions with Intel could spawn long-term revenue
and a serious rival to Windows.”

“Corel Corp.’s talks with Intel Corp. and at least one computer
maker to produce a new line of cheap personal computers could lead
to significant long-term revenue for the Ottawa software maker —
and produce a serious threat to Microsoft Corp., analysts say.”

“Corel’s chief executive officer, Michael Cowpland, said last
week his company is in talks to produce a line of Linux-based,
low-cost computers with semiconductor giant Intel and at least one
PC maker. PC Chips Group of Cos. of Taiwan later said it’s one of
the manufacturers involved in the talks.”
