It brings back so many memories. I was right there in 96 when Corel took over WordPerfect. No body knew what we were getting into really, in retrospect. The joke at the time as they say in this article was really that Novell was mismanaging things, the examples were check Unix, since Novell bought it, it's dying, check out WordPerfect same thing. So the joke would wrap up - if MS wants to win a given business they just have to have Novell buy that business and it's just as good as stick a fork in it, it's done!
