    Why does this company bother making software anymore?

    Does anyone even buy or use any of their software?

    Corel Painter is the only Corel software I've ever used, the £250+ price tag will kill most non professional users interest though.

    Corel is usually where good software goes to die. It is a shame, but it's true. Corel PhotoPaint, Corel PaintshopPro and Corel PhotoImpact all examples of apps they have killed or ran into the ground.

    It's almost as if Corel is a front for Adobe to dispose of the competition.

    They have some nice apps, unfortunatly the management and marketing of Commodore circa 1994.

    Re: Interviews - HEXUS.TalkingShop: Corel chases the mainstream user

    When a company charges more for an update of their software (that just adds guaranteed Vista computability and new camera RAW support) than the software cost in the first place (Photoshop X2 (£17) > X2 ultimate upgrade (£40)) - They truly deserve to go under.

    I'm never buying from them again.
