Well, first thing I heared time ago when Corel "went Linux" was that
they planned to "improve" wine to run their Windows apps under Linux.
Later, I heared / read about native ports of PhotoPain and CorelDraw and
was happier.
Well if it's all win, there will still be the improved wine, hopefully
GPL and in the current CVS of wine...
I also thought of buying CorelDraw, but if this turns out to be a
patched windows version I'll forget it.
