ZDNET UK: Corel endeavours to attract more Windows users

“Michael Cowpland, president and CEO of Corel, has proclaimed
this development to be a major breakthrough in popular
cross-platform interoperability: “This will enable organisations to
mix Linux and Windows desktops seamlessly which is a prime goal of
Corel in our Linux development. With the integration of GraphOn
Bridges into the Corel Linux OS it will be easy to enjoy the
benefits and high reliability of Linux while having access to the
most widely used Windows applications.”

This may help to convert more Windows users to Corel’s
version of the Linux operating system as well as Corel’s competing
office software, however, it is not exactly revolutionary.
A
number of companies, including GraphOn, have been offering
server-side Windows application interoperability for years. A
development project called WINE already enables Windows to be
directly implemented on a Unix machine without the help of a remote
server.”
