Here’s some intresting snipets that you should take note off..
Microsoft on Wednesday launched Works Suite 2003, a new version of the software maker’s all-in-one productivity package.
The new product comes as Microsoft seeks to recover from a double blow–the decisions by Dell Computer and Hewlett-Packard to stop carrying Works in favor of Corel’s WordPerfect Productivity Pack on some consumer PCs.
The new product comes to market under the shadow cast by the Dell and HP defections. Starting in October, HP will carry the WordPerfect package instead of Works Suite on all Pavilion consumer PCs sold in North America. Corel expects to pick up 3 million additional users of WordPerfect, which competes more with Microsoft Office than with Works.
My spin:This is indeed interesting. Corel is picking up steam, with its lower costing and better application. HOWEVER, Microsoft is the standard bearer. With the new Works out this just adds fuel to the Corel/Microsoft duel.
