"TakeFive Software, the leading provider of Source Code Engineering(TM) (SCE) solutions and an Integrated Systems Company (Nasdaq: INTS), today announced the release of a specialized version of SNiFF+ for Linux developers: the SNiFF+ Penguin IDE. Software developers on Linux now have access to the power of an industry leading development tool for free. Compared to the latest release of the commercially available SNiFF+ version 3.2, the new SNiFF+ Penguin IDE was designed exclusively to meet the needs of C and C++ developers writing applications for the Linux platform."

"A free Linux desktop application development environment like SNiFF+ makes a valuable contribution to the continued growth of Linux," says Benoy Tamang, VP Marketing, Caldera Systems, Inc. "The availability of powerful tools to support application development contributes to the evolution of Linux worldwide. Caldera Systems, the recognized Linux for ebusiness leader, understands that as developers see the growth of powerful development tools for Linux, more companies will look at Linux as a viable, supportable business platform."

"The new SNiFF+ Penguin IDE is TakeFive Software's answer to the requirements of the emerging Linux market. By offering a limited version of SNiFF+, TakeFive is assisting the growth of this market in anticipation of future need for the commercial version of SNiFF+ as Linux projects and teams grow. According to IDC reports, the number of Linux users has increased by 212% over the last year. This number is expected to grow even higher for the next couple of years. Expectations are that by 2003 Linux will be widely used on the desktop."
