"VistaSource Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Applix, Inc. (NASDAQ:APLX), announced today at Linux World (booth #1126) the launch of its beta program for the newest version of AnywareOffice for corporate users (http://anywareoffice.com). AnywareOffice, VistaSource's server-centric version of its award-winning Applixware Office client suite, is the first and only full-featured productivity suite accessible through any Java-enabled web browser. AnywareOffice is specifically designed for server-centric computing environments and offers greater flexibility, mobility, simplicity and lower total cost of ownership for corporate customers."

"The new AnywareOffice beta program is the result of an increasing market trend towards the server-centric or network computing model, and the company's ability to service this market with its award-winning products. VistaSource will tackle this growing market with current and upcoming releases of AnywareOffice."

"Our unique advantages are essential for any partner looking to provide leading-edge solutions for server-hosted applications," said Bernie Thompson, President, VistaSource, Inc. "Our ability to deliver applications with high performance over a browser and our scalability to support large numbers of clients off of a single server make VistaSource and AnywareOffice the obvious choice for application servers, thin-clients and ASPs." "In recent weeks, major industry players have announced a shift in their business models towards server-centric computing. Announcements such as these add great credibility to VistaSource's leading vision, its established capabilities and existing customer deployments of office applications delivered from the server," stated R.J. Grandpre, Vice President, Sales and Marketing for VistaSource, Inc."
