market embrace of the new Linux line of products. But new research
shows that U.S. retail demand for Corel's Linux products is still
less than $500,000 monthly."

products will grow to account for 50 per cent of company sales in
"But so far the Linux product line has yet to generate the big
sales Corel needs to replace rapidly declining older products and
ease operating losses of about $20 million each quarter."
