Actually, Corel Linux is what Xandros originated from. It was not the half-hearted attempt that Draw for Linux was. Decent distribution, really- just not my cup of tea.
The reason I started using it was my Corel rep told me about their endevour into linux and sent me a few copies for evaluation. Your right it was a decent distro for the day. Very refined for a first attempt. It ran a small mail server for 4 years until the old beast of a K6-II finally died (fan failure). Too bad, it had my best uptime by far. Now I use "in the can" solutions for ease of enterprise deployment like suse (Ya, ya cue the boo's and hiss's, hey it works and it works well).
While going through my old CDs I found the actual copy of the first distro I mentioned in an earlier post... it was Red Hat 7.1, and the version I bought actually came with a Loki CD that had trial versions of many of their games (which was by far the coolest thing I can remember from that distro).
