Re: [vox] Re: [lugod librarian] WANTED: WordPerfect for linux.

Quoting David Margolis (margolid@ecs.csus.edu):

OK, I've found an ftp'able set of Corel Linux OS 1.2 AKA "Second
Edition" for i386 files, here:


Looking down through it, I cannot find any bundled WordPerfect package
(though it's conceivable I'm missing something).  My best guess /
recollection is that there Corel Linux OS was available in several
different bundles, some of which (boxed sets?) included proprietary 
sweeteners like the xwp 8 "Light Edition" you mention.

Late addition:  Confirmed.  The following Corel Linux OS bundles
were created:

Corel Linux OS Download ("Free") Edition:  adds Corel Install Express,
Corel Update and Corel File Manager.

Corel Linux OS Standard Edition:  includes Netscape Communicator, Adobe
Acrobat Reader, WordPerfect 8 for Linux (Light Edition), Instant
Messenger-ICQ compatible client, fonts

Corel Linux OS Deluxe Edition:  adds BRU backup software, clip art,
games, 30-day installation tech support, eFax Plus service, a user
guide, sound drivers and a 3-1/2-inch Linux penguin.

I believe the latter two were both boxed sets, at different price

The remaining question is what's the licence terms for your copy of xwp
8 "Light Edition", and how does it differ from other xwp 8 variants such
as the "Download Edition"?

I don't know the answer to the latter question -- maybe you can find the
licence text on your CD? -- but can pretty much guarantee that you're
technically forbidden to redistribute it.  Not that Corel cares, at this
late date.

Cheers,            There are only 10 types of people in this world --
