Corel LINUX Coming to Durham Personal Computer Users’ Club

Joe Luz, of Mindshare, who has represented Corel for four years, will demonstrate Corel LINUX at the Durham Personal Computer Users’ Club on March 9, 2000 at 7:30 p.m. The Club will meet in the upstairs room of St. George’s Anglican Church, 51 Centre Street South, Oshawa.

Corel recently launched Corel LINUX at Fall Comdex in Las Vegas. Dr. Michael Cowpland, president and chief executive officer of Corel Corporation, stated, “with our demonstration of our work on a wide-range of mainstream productivity and graphic applications for Linux, there can be no doubt that Corel is a clear Linux desktop leader.”

Three versions of Corel LINUX are available:

  • The no-charge download version
  • the Standard version
  • the Deluxe Version.

    Corel is also said to be developing versions of WordPerfect and CorelDRAW graphics suite for Linux. The office suite is expected to be available in the second quarter of 2000. Joe will also demonstrate a range of productivity and graphics applications currently under development. Corel’s commitment is to deliver a complete Linux solution.

    Joe started as a channel marketing representative promoting Corel products in chain stores. Later he was promoted to Canadian Regional Supervisor and then to his current position as Northern Region Supervisor where he manages the Canadian team plus some representatives in the northern United States.

    Corel Corporation is an internationally recognized developer of award-winning graphics and business productivity applications. Committed to performance, compatibility, value and open standards, Corel develops products for the Windows, Macintosh, UNIX, Linux and Java platforms.
