Corel WordPerfect shipping Debian with WordPerfect 8
Will Corel WordPerfect 8 be using any software packaging mechanisms
such as RPM, DEB, and TGZ?
Corel will ship a shrink-wrapped version of
Corel WordPerfect8 for Linux that will use its
own installation program. However, we are also
bundling our product with several of the major
Linux distributor's CDs, and for these Linux
distributions we will use the packaging format
that is employed by the Operating System
installation program. Therefore, a new Debian
distribution install CD would contain a .DEB
package for Corel WordPerfect 8 for Linux; the
same will apply to RedHat Linux (.RPM) and
Hmm, they're shipping Debian with WordPerfect 8 and including it in
.debs? Cool! :)
