"UniComp (NASDAQ: UCMP) subsidiary, Unibol, today announced that UNIBOL400 is now available for Linux. UNIBOL400 is an advanced software product designed to reengineer IBM AS/400 applications to run on new platforms. Unibol addresses the needs of AS/400 software developers, who want to respond to the changing market by extending platform coverage without the high cost of maintaining and supporting additional application sources. Rapidly growing customer demand and industry support prompted Unibol to deliver UNIBOL400 on Linux."

""Linux is going from strength to strength and is set to take a chunk of the Unix and Microsoft markets. The maturity of the operating system, low cost of ownership, simple licensing issues and the fact that it ships with the apache web server has massively fueled its uptake." commented Stephen A. Hafer, CEO of UniComp. "Unix, NT and Linux offer different strengths - all-important in different parts of a good IT infrastructure," Hafer continued. "Businesses need integrated technology. Unibol facilitates easy integration by allowing the same application to run on all leading e-business servers.""

""The partner agreement between our subsidiary, Unibol, and Red Hat (NASDAQ: RHAT) demonstrates UniComp's continued commitment to the Linux market, and strengthens our position as a leading company in providing exciting new business solutions to the Linux community," said Hafer."
