InfoWorld: Corel Linux desktop OS will run Windows apps

“Corel on Thursday announced plans to integrate GraphOn
connectivity software into its desktop version of the Linux
operating system, thus enabling users to run Windows
applications.”

Corel signed a deal with GraphOn to use GraphOn’s Bridges
software in its version of Linux, which was introduced in
November.
The version of Corel Linux operating system
containing Linux client and Windows NT server licenses for GraphOn
Bridges is scheduled to ship in mid-2000, says Derek Burney,
Corel’s executive vice president of engineering.”

“With the Corel Linux desktop operating system, users will be
able to remotely access, by dialing-up to a server or connecting to
the Internet, Microsoft Windows applications, Corel Windows
applications, and most other Windows applications residing on a
Windows NT server, without having to license any additional
software.”
