Top three mobile application threats

The latest Linux US retail sales figures for February 2000 from PCData show that Corel Linux jumped from 2.3 per cent in November to 19.6 per cent in February, while Red Hat's share dropped from 58.5 per cent to 40.4 percent. Over the same period, Macmillan's share dropped marginally, but SuSE showed a tenfold leap from 0.7 per cent to 7.1 per cent. Corel's Linux sales data include WordPerfect8 for Linux . Caldera experienced a drop in its share, but this may reflect its targeting at the enterprise, where retail sales are small. Corel CEO Michael Cowpland pronounced himself "thrilled" at the level of support, which is the only bright news for Corel for some time. The WordPerfect Office Suite for Linux is scheduled for US and Canadian retail release this weekend. Corel says that it has added additional dates for its road show next week, where seven shows have sold out, and 10,000 people have said they would attend. ®
