Date: Tue, 28 Nov 2000 18:04:21 -0500 From: Michele Webster firstname.lastname@example.org To: email@example.com Hi all - hopefully this clears things up - This letter is in response to the article "Applix Gives Up on the Linux Desktop" written by Robin Miller and posted on NewsForge on 11/28/00. It is the belief of VistaSource, Inc. that some of the statements made in this article are incorrect, and some of the quotations made by RJ Grandpre were taken out of context. To correct some of the statements made in this article, please note the following: * VistaSource is not "throwing in the desktop towel." VistaSource will still produce and sell its desktop product through traditional and online retailers and through its own online store. VistaSource has also committed to future releases of Anyware Desktop (formerly Applixware) and will continue to provide the same quality product and level of service to its existing customers. * The real news is the change of focus from a company that focuses on desktop applications to one that is forging the way server-centric and web-based applications. This shift in focus was announced on August 15th, 2000 at Linux World in San Jose. For the complete release which further describes this strategic shift, please visit: http://www.vistasource.com//news/press/pr_966348464 * Active development continues for BOTH Anyware Desktop (Applixware) and the server version, Anyware Application Server. Both products are recognized as integral components of the VistaSource product mix.
