"Corel Corp., long accused by customers and analysts of not
being innovative enough, is putting the final touches on a new
strategy that will focus its applications firmly on the Web--with a
little help from Microsoft Corp."
"In line with this, the Ottawa-based company will announce
within a few months new server and enterprise editions of its Corel
Linux operating system that will enable Corel to sell "solutions
rather than applications," CEO and President Derek Burney said
last week in an interview."
"The significance of Corel's new strategy is a shift from an old
distribution model to a new model of software as a custom service,
delivered over the Web."
