Subject: Updated version: Wordperfect 6.0 for SCO under Linux!!

   I'm happy to announce that Wordperfect has decided (been persuaded) to
release a statically linked version of SCO Wordperfect 6.0 that will run
under Linux. A developer at Wordperfect gave me access to a statically 
linked copy last week to test, and it worked great on  my Linux
box at home with the 9/20 iBCS kernel module installed.
  
   Because of this late decision on WP's part, the initial WP 6.0 CDs only have 
the dynamic binary which WON'T run under Linux. Linux folks will have to 
wait for about a month for new CDs which will have both dynamic and static 
binaries, or they can order now the static product on tape or maybe even
floppies for a small fee. The number to call is 1-800-321-3280.

     If you would like to have a look at WP 6.0, the static demo is available 
from ftp.wordperfect.com in

/unix/wp60/demos/sco/static/x11/wp60stat.tar.
 
     This is a FULL version of the product, minus printing and saving
capabilities. It is already compressed so gzipping it won't reduce it in
size.
