Software solutions developer Corel Corp. (Nasdaq: CORL) announced this week that it has entered into a licensing agreement with Macromedia, Inc. (Nasdaq: MACR) to bring Macromedia Flash technology to its distribution of the Linux operating system.
Yeah, Corel blows.
But don't take my word for it, check out NASDAQ:CORL, I think that sums it up nicely.
Too bad too, they had a couple of nice products.
yea, same here!
i need to keep a windows-machine only to use macromedia flash. hope to get an apple ibook to replace it soon, though. i need to be able to create/review flash movies and their actionscript because we use them for fast, comfortable and eyepleasing front ends on large-scale java-based web applications.
port that one piece of software to linux, a large web developer community is waiting for it and will BUY IT from you!
i fully agree and second on the disappointment-part in the previous posting. corel might have released a good piece of software but labeling its swf-exportfilter as "delivering flash to linux" (suggesting authoring functionality) is just a backhandslap over the faces of the developer community i mentioned above.
When I saw this heading I thought (hoped) that Corel was formatting Flash to be authored on a linux box.
Imagine my disappointment!
