I don't know from what storybooks you get your facts, but I can assure
you that you are just plain wrong.

Corel WordPerfect 8 for Linux *IS NOT* a Motif program. If the looks don't
convince ( you never have seen a Motif program look so "sleek" ) then you can
do a find on the application tree, and search for "[w,W][i,I][n,N][e,E]",
which should prove successful if I recall correctly.

StarOffice was in version 5.1 available for both Windows and Linux. It is
neither a wine application, nor a Motif application unless wine would be
somehow hidden and linked into the binaries, which I wouldn't believe.
StarOffice *USED* to be a Motif application back in the 3.x days while
available for Linux AND other Unix OS's, but SUN didn't take it over until in
early version 5.2, so they had nothing to do with the Windows port.
