As Corel CEO Michael Cowpland promised last month (see Corel to offer Linux WordPerfect Office 2000 for free), the software vendor will this week release a gratis Linux version of its WordPerfect word processor. And next spring, Corel will release a Linux version of the full WordPerfect Office package. Following the standard Linux distribution model, Office will be free for individuals to download, but Corel will charge for a boxed edition, containing manuals, clip-art, templates and tech support, aimed at business users. The retail edition will ship in two weeks' time. According to a Corel spokeswoman, the personal package will cost $69.95, while business buyers will have to fork out $495. ® See also Star challenges MS Office with Linux, Windows freeware
