Industry's Leading GUI Builder Keeps Pace with Quickly Evolving Linux System

Integrated Computer Solutions, Inc. (ICS), the leading supplier of user
interface development tools for UNIX, today announced that its flagship
product, Builder Xcessory (BX PRO(tm)), is now available for Red Hat Linux
V6.0. This announcement follows the recent announcement of support for SuSE
Linux V6.1, the latest release from the leading European distribution of
Linux. This announcement underscores ICS' commitment to maintain the pace
with the quickly evolving Linux operating system.

BX PRO is the GUI builder preferred by UNIX software developers because its
WYSIWYG environment simplifies and speeds the creation of user interfaces.
ICS has ported the latest BX PRO release, V5.0.5, to Red Hat Linux V6.0. BX
PRO 5.0 consists of Builder Xcessory(tm), the industry's most advanced
graphical user interface builder for Motif; ViewKit(tm), a flexible and
mature C++ reuse framework that can be tailored to accommodate the specific
needs of individual businesses; and EnhancementPak(tm), a library of 34
reusable components including business graphs and sophisticated user
interface controls. More detailed product information is available under
the Products section of the ICS home page at http://www.ics.com.

Peter Winston, ICS president, said, "Until now, Internet time has been the
buzzword used to describe a quickly evolving industry. But now, the open
source model has produced Linux time and it is even faster! This
announcement signifies that ICS has set its clocks to Linux time and that
our customers can be assured that we will keep current with the quickly
evolving Linux system."

Platform Supported
In addition to Red Hat V6.0, ICS has ported BX PRO to Red Hat V5.1, V5.2
and SuSE V6.0 and V6.1. ICS licenses BX PRO on popular UNIX workstations
from Sun, HP, IBM, DEC and SGI. Applications built with BX PRO 5.0 can also
be deployed to the Web or Windows NT with optional add-on products offered
by ICS.
