Well, I'm still talking about newbie subjects, but here's my story.
I got the download of Corel Photopaint for Linux from an Internet Cafe, since my pokey connection wouldn't do it. When it installed on Hed Hat 7, it asked to upgrade the wine program because it detected that WordPerfect Office 2000 wouldn't work without it. Both programs need Corel's implimentation of wine to work under Linux. I think they have improved it because the WordPerfect 9 program is much more stable than before. So if anyone is having problems with an early version of Office 2000, this is the way to go.
Also, I never realized just how crappy the True Type fonts are in Linux - must be legal problems including them eh? But WordPerfect Office 2000 has a nifty litte font installer program that you can use to ferry fonts from WordPerfect to your Linux fontserver. A lot sharper than the fonts with RedHat. I guess they are hard to make, am I right?
And to think for a while I was considering Windows again. Tsk, tsk.
