Dear Friends,

Today, Helix Code changed its name to Ximian, Inc.  The name Ximian
(which is pronounced ZIM-ee-un) differs from our old name in that we
can actually trademark it and thereby ward off the legions of copycats
who want to ride on our coattails.  And it sounds cooler, too.

Everything else about us remains unchanged: we're the same company
made up of the same great hackers writing the same free software. And
yes, led by the same hyperkinetic American/Mexican duo.

If you'd like more information about our name change, please visit our
Name Change FAQ at http://www.ximian.com/rename/ or write to

Sincerely yours,
Nat Friedman
President and CEO
Ximian, Inc.
