"Raleigh-based LastFoot.com and Austin-based TreLOS are merging in a share-for-share stock trade of undisclosed value... LastFoot.com, founded last year, provides software and network desktop services. ... TreLOS offers a Win4Lin software package that lets Linux operating systems run common Windows 95 and 98 and Office 2000 applications."
"Jim Curtin, chief executive of 13-employee TreLOS, told dbusiness.com the program runs the Windows applications as fast as if they were running on Microsoft operating systems. "Linux growth has been held back by a lack of applications to run on the open source system," Curtin said. "This is the answer.""
"He noted that companies that want to move to Linux but have been held back by reluctance to desert their Windows applications can now make the transition. Linux is considered more reliable and less prone to crashes than Windows operating systems. Linux is widely used as the operating system on Internet servers."
