It would have helped to provide a URL for people to browse it...  :->

Try that on for size people.  It does appear Corel's looking favorably
upon Linux...

When did Corel release the whole office Suite?  I thought they only
released WordPerfect 7 for linux.

Whoops - - my mistake. Sorry (and dreaming on . . . .).

At this point, only CorelDRAW and WP7 are out for Unix, evidently : (
I was sure I'd heard that the entire suite was coming, but I find no
mention of that at the Corel site. Guess it may hinge on how many
copies of WP7 for Unix move.

1. Linux thin client to W2k Pro?

Is there a home/small business (read: low cost) solution out there that lets
my redhat 7.0 machine run programs on a W2K Pro machine? I'm interested in
the same model as X Windows, where my RH machine would be a display server
for programs running on the W2K Pro machine. Ideally, I'd like to avoid a
simple 'remote console' in which the one and only Windows desktop is simply
redirected to a remote display device (for example, ATT's VNC). The problem
with that model is you still only have one user controlling the system. I'd
like multi-user access - one person at the redhat machine running programs
on the W2K, while another sits at the W2K's console, running different
programs. Again, a la the X Windows model.

It seems Citrix produces this type of software (metaframe?, winframe?) -
though marketed (and priced) for the enterprise rather than home or small
business. Also, do Citrix server products run only on W2K Server, not W2K
