Hi Everyone,

Our next regular OCLUG meeting is being pushed ahead one day to
Thursday May 7th from 7-9pm. Location is still being worked out.
I am pleased to report the reason for this schedule rearrangement
is the "public announcement that will deal with Corel's position on Open Source
Software and the importance of this new paradigm to Corel Computer Corp."

In attendance will be:
Dr. Michael Cowpland: President and CEO, Corel Corporation. Chairman of
Corel Computer Corp.
Mr. Eid Eid, President of Corel Computer Corp.
There will be possibly some officials from Netscape on hand also.

Here is your chance to show support for the Open Source movement,
Linux and to the future of truly having choice when it comes to a
computing environment. I urge all members of OCLUG to come out to this
and bring a friend along too. This night will be of historic
importance along the lines of the Netscape announcement in
February. The implications of showing your support by attending will
have a big influence possibly on more of this happening within Corel
and other companies. They need to know you care, let's show them we

Thanks Dave Neil Your OCLUG Spokes-person
