LINCOLN, ON - April 22, 1999 - Linux, the fastest rising computer
operating system for business and the Internet, has 10 million users and
growing faster than Window NT. Major computer companies, including IBM,
Compaq, Oracle, Netscape and Corel, have Linux editions of their
products or have announced releases in the next few months.
PegaSoft is pleased to announce the opening of a new Linux portal site
designed specifically for professional Linux developers. The portal is
The PegaSoft Portal contains hundreds of links to programmer-oriented
web sites, including development tools, reference sites, and locations
for free support. There are also a host of useful services including:
* official Linux news
* the "hired guns" job board
* auction room
* chat room
* weather forecasts
* Linux site searching across the entire World Wide Web
* home page customization, including the ability to choose "themes" for
your start page
PegaSoft was disappointed in the current trends in Linux portals. These
sites tend to be self-serving promotions and to have news pages full of
gossip and speculation. Useful links were scattered across many sites.
PegaSoft set out to design a site that would be truly useful to
developers, with official news, a full selection of links, fast loading
without a lot of extensive advertisement and promotional material.
- From its inception in 1990, PegaSoft has been a team-oriented company
dedicated to creating software that pushes the industry boundaries.
Reformed in 1996 to develop Linux software, PegaSoft continues to
produce products of technical excellence and performance. Our first
release is System Manager in a Box(, a Linux configuration and
administration tool that uses artificial intelligence. We believe that
powerful, quality software is not just wishful thinking, but a
responsibility. We continue to make your computer take flight.
