Corel enhances its own version of Linux with an auto-installer

Corel Corp. has designed its own version of the Linux operating system around the Debian Linux kernel, the K Desktop Environment and other freeware applications.

A graphical installer application will automate installation and detect most hardware, company officials said. The product will come bundled with the WordPerfect Office suite or standalone. A Linux-compatible version of WordPerfect is available now for free download, at www.corel.com, and the full office suite for Linux will be downloadable early next year at an undetermined price. The OS runs on Pentium PCs.

Corel Linux will have a Microsoft Windows-like file manager, an e-mail client, integrated Web browsing, File Transfer Protocol support, local and network drive browsing, and free downloads of patches and upgrades.
