Corel Is Pleased To Be Chosen By Amiga To Supply Linux® Applications

Corel and Amiga work closely to support new Amiga Operating Environment

Ottawa, Canada— July 27, 1999— Corel Corporation (NASDAQ: CORL, TSE: COR) is pleased to announce that it has formed a new relationship with Amiga, to ensure that Corel’s award-winning software applications will be supported on Amiga’s new line of products that are scheduled to be released later this year.

Recently, Amiga announced that it has selected Linux® as the OS kernel for the new Amiga Operating Environment. Amiga is developing products and technology for current and future computing devices which are focused on making computers and the Internet a natural part of everyday life.

“Corel is dedicating extensive resources to develop Linux, and the feedback from our customers has been tremendous,” said Dr. Michael Cowpland, president and chief executive officer of Corel Corporation. “Since December, our customers have made over 1 million download attempts for Corel WordPerfect 8 for Linux. We are pleased to have the opportunity to bring our award-winning applications to an even wider audience and to further the growing popularity of Linux.”

As Amiga approaches the release dates of the new Amiga Operating Environment and the Amiga MCC (Multimedia Convergence Computer), it will announce more details.

“We are extremely excited about this new relationship with Corel and its entire product line,” said Jim Collas, president and chief executive officer of Amiga. “This ensures that our customers who purchase the new Amiga systems will have world-class personal productivity applications such as the upcoming WordPerfect Office for Linux.”
