"With the latest mergers and takeovers the computer world has only begun to feel the rumbles. Linux is slowly eating away, day by day, at other Operating Systems clients. This month we look at what might happen if a major company like Time Warner took over the now dwindling Corel Corporation."

"In the last few months Corel stocks have dropped lower and lower. Not to mention the recent loss of their CEO. To compensate for this Corel has laid off a lot of it's employees in an effort to reduce costs. With the Tech Market the way that it is, "The rich get richer..." and we all get to suffer. Or is that the case?"

"As most people know Time Warner is a large company that owns a lot of major companies. They own America On-Line (AOL) and Netscape. If Corel was to be bought by Time Warner, they would be part of the conglomeration of business that make up the ever expanding Time Warner. This acquisition would change computing as we know it."
