Is Linux Compatible?

by RohilaMan In reply to Is Linux Compatible?

Corel in the past has made versions of Corel Draw for Linux. As far as the other applications (Adobe, etc.) you can use a program called WINE to emulate Windows on a Linux Box. Once you have installed this program, you should be able to run MOST WinApps within Linux.

There are of course applications that are similar to what you are looking for. For example instead of PhotoShop, there is GIMP, instead of Office there is OpenOffice. Best of all both are free downloads.
