CorelDraw port relies on Wine

Coreldraw graphics Suite, one of the most popular applications for image creation and photo editing, is now available on Linux systems.

Coreldraw graphics Suite, one of the most popular applications for image creation and photo editing, is now available on Linux systems. However, it isnt really a native Linux application.

Like many of the Corel productivity applications built for Linux, CorelDraw makes heavy use of the Wine emulation environment, which renders it less stable than a native Linux application. Users of Red Hat Linux systems should also expect problems with the Fonttastic font server that CorelDraw employs.

Despite these drawbacks, CorelDraw provides powerful illustration and graphics-editing capabilities beyond those found in current Linux applications. CorelDraw Graphics Suite for Linux is priced at $199.
