The firm confirmed today that the product was likely to ship in December but it would be January before end-users will be able to lay hands on the product.

PCDN Comment: With a gargantuan 85 per cent of the application suite market by most estimates, a slipped quarter won't worry Bill Gates' men too much. However, with Corel notching up impressive early sales and OEM deals for its cut-price suites, and introducing server-based pricing that will massively undercut Big Green, it has been a bad news month for the all-conquering product.
