AUSTIN, TEXAS -- NeTraverse Inc. has announced the immediate availability of the latest version of its Win4Lin Workstation product.

The Win4Lin Workstation product is the leading tool preferred by Linux users to operate applications that are used on Microsoft Windows 95/98/98SE and ME including personal productivity, software development, Web development, desktop and graphic applications since its introduction in 2000.

Running Microsoft Windows applications in a Linux environment allows users to take advantage of the inherent reliability and security of Linux while continuing to use familiar industry standard applications and preserving their work products created on them.

The Win4Lin product has successfully eliminated desktop platform redundancy. Sites where it was necessary to maintain separate machines, one for Linux/UNIX and one for Microsoft Windows-based applications, can now use only one machine by running Linux and the Win4Lin product, without the need for dual-booting.

New features requested by the more than 800,000-strong user community included in Win4Lin Version 4.0 are:

  • Support for Windows Millennium Edition (Windows ME)
  • Large Windows Memory Footprint
  • Easier resizing of the Win4Lin window
  • Asian Language Support for Microsoft Windows 98SE
  • Wheel Mouse support Increased Application Support

End-user and systems administration user loyalty for the Win4Lin product has been a source of strong and gratifying support to the company.

"I'm a DBA with a small tech firm in Chantilly, VA. and I've been looking for a way to run my Win apps under Linux. The Win4Lin product operates superbly. My hat is off to you all," said Brian Paffen, Oracle Database Administrator (OCP), Arlington, VA.

The Win4Lin workstation product fits into the overall NeTraverse product strategy of providing the tools necessary to make Information Technology organizations and end users successful by using reliable cost effective software that can run on both the most modern high-end platforms as well as take advantage of less expensive Intel Pentium II and III platforms.

"In the spirit of giving our users a bridge to cross over, not a chasm to leap across, the new release of Win4Lin provides the capability and power necessary for running Microsoft-based tools and applications in the reliable and secure Linux environment," said James P. Curtin, NeTraverse President and CEO.

Win4Lin Workstation Edition Version 4.0 is now shipping and is available as either an upgrade for existing users or a full product for new users.
