In the News According to ZDNet, the final note in Corel's gradual abandonment of its ambitious Linux initiatives seems to have arrived. Corel was involved in several open source projects including its own Linux distro, WINE, Application Printing Services API, Corel Package Utilities, 10n-i18n Internationalization, and Cprof Performance Profiler. The site will only be up through the end of the month.

PhotoPaint for Linux was complete crap. Couldn't run 5 minutes. Couldn't install WP for Linux. I wonder just how serious they were.

I agree with you DrP and would like to add that PhotoPaint and WP were impossible to run on the same machine. PhotoPaint always corrupted my WP installation or vice versa.

However I miss Corel Linux

Maybe xandros.net will at last release their OS?
