I tried it and returned it in favor or Debian Gnu/Linux package.

On one machine it refused to install, it took a week to connect with tech
support who said I had a bad CD Rom drive (which is not true).

On another machine I couldn't get the printer to work nor could I get the
modem to stay online for more than 10 seconds.

According to Corel news groups, many are having similar problems. Those
who get it to work, however, love it.

I suspect the Corel release is still more of a beta than a finished

So far, I have been happy with the Debian GNU/Linux package, and the
manual it comes with is far superior to the Corel manual
