competition from important accounts, one way or another it looks

New York.”

If Microsoft is not going to be allowed to do everything
the way it’s done it in the past, then perhaps competition — even

at the Comdex computer show in Las Vegas next week, Corel’s
development efforts are gaining market favor.”
