Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

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
