After Corel Linux 1.0 had been out a while, I saw some copies at my
local Costco warehouse for ~$25 (US).  It included WP 8.1 with a hefty
manual as well as a nice little Tux figure which I have sitting on top
of my computer (I tossed the rest of the package).  WP 8.1 is in
.deb format (wp-full 8.1-12) and runs just fine on my woody system.  It
does not require wine, but depends on both libc5 and libc6, which I
find a bit strange:

Depends: libc5 (>= 5.4.0-0), libc6, xlib6g, type1inst
