"Cobalt Networks, Inc., a leading provider of server appliances, today announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire privately-held Chili!Soft, Inc., provider of software solutions for platform-independent Active Server Pages (ASP), the Microsoft-led standard for the rapid development and deployment of interactive Web applications."

"'The hosting market is driven by Web-based applications. By integrating Chili!Soft Active Server Pages technology to Cobalt's server appliances, we believe we will bridge the gap between Microsoft development tools and the Linux operating system,' said Stephen DeWitt, president and CEO, Cobalt Networks, Inc. 'Microsoft Web tools are the most commonly used tools in the developer community. This acquisition enables Cobalt to share in the largest pool of qualified developers and significantly expand the number of solutions available for service providers using the Cobalt platform.'"

"Chili!Soft ASP, which won a recent award at LinuxWorld as "Best of Show for intranet/extranet product," is supported by industry leading Web development tools such as Microsoft Visual InterDev and FrontPage, Macromedia Drumbeat, NetObjects ScriptBuilder and Allaire HomeSite. Chili!Soft ASP is compatible with databases from Oracle, Informix, Sybase, IBM, MySQL, and Computer Associates. Chili!Soft technology enables ASP to be built and deployed on leading Web servers such as Apache and Netscape and operating systems including Linux, UNIX, and Windows NT."
