Sneak Preview: CorelDraw 9 for Linux - page 4
An Overview of CorelDraw 9 Beta 2
Right or wrong, there's an argument to be made about where Linux is headed as a desktop OS and what it's going to take to get it there. Corel has clearly pledged itself to the task of making Linux at home on the corporate and personal desktop, and shows no signs of backing down from that committment.
The CorelDraw Suite is a powerful indicator of Corel's ability to bring feature-filled, powerful applications to Linux. Despite the issues we continue to have with the performance hit use of WINE appears to incur, we're consistently impressed with the sheer number of features and polish Corel brings.
We don't believe CorelDraw is going to be for everybody. There are plenty of Web designers who will be content to stand pat with the GIMP, for instance. On the other hand, a whole community of business and home users will be drawn to Corel's offerings because they're friendly, feature-packed, and end-user oriented. Corel's contribution to the Linux community continues to be something to watch.
