 OTTAWA, Ont., Nov. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Corel Corporation, together with SyDOS, a division of SyQuest Technology, announced today a joint marketing partnership to supply the lowest-cost CorelDRAW(R) - CD-ROM drive bundle. Under the new agreement, SyDOS will ship CorelDRAW together with their Personal CD(TM) CD-ROM product to the end user in one package.
 "Since 1991, Corel has recognized the power, flexibility and value that we can pass on to our users by publishing such as CorelDRAW on CD-ROM. SyDOS's bundle builds on these benefits by offering a high value solution that is easy to install at a very reasonable price. The bundle responds directly to the increasing demand for multimedia application and solutions," said Dr. Michael Cowpland, president and CEO of Corel Corporation.
 "The SyDOS bundle provides an inexpensive way for users to harness the potential and value of CD technology. The Personal CD drive can be used to access the hundreds of software titles now available. And with CD-Audio, users can play their favorite compact discs directly from the computer," said Linda Haury, vice president of marketing for SyDOS.
 According to industry trend-watcher DataQuest, over the next several years, CD-ROMs will grow by 86 percent and will be the largest segment of optical drive technology. And, within that segment, the greatest growth will be in the home/small office for software distribution.
