Good writeup saves an otherwise uninteresting software announcement (even though I'm kindof beginning to like Corel as a company).
Corel has pretty much been in the forefront of many trends... does anyone remember their "committment to a Java version of their office suite"? But realistically, Corel is the company in the best position to become ~Microsoft-ish~, but I don't mean that in a bad way.
- an Operating System (Corel Linux, based on Debian)
- a Word Processors/Office Suite
- really nice graphical tools (CorelDraw/CorelPaint)
If Corel manages to keep their act together, they could become a very well-regarded company, owning all the components that any simple business would need to run. If Corel become "the best company" to buy your Linux software from, it could be a very good thing for them (and their bottom line).
The only thing missing from their stable of applications is some kind of group-ware, otherwise they have all the bases covered.
