Following its lengthy anti-trust court battle, Microsoft has been dealt a further insult by the US Department of Justice (DoJ), which has ordered a rival's office software.
The DoJ has signed a three-year enterprise licence for Corel's Wordperfect Office 2000 suite, with more than 55,000 users.
The multi-million pound deal includes Wordperfect Office 2000 with Dragon Naturally Speaking voice recognition software, Office 2000 Professional and Wordperfect Law Office 2000.
The package also includes flexible licensing terms through one-time purchasing, no reporting and unlimited growth for the duration of the three-year site licence. Corel is also providing the DoJ with diversified office automation options, including its legal specific office suite with technical support and services.
