"VistaSource, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Applix, Inc. (NASDAQ:APLX), announced today that it will join forces with Red Hat, Inc. to offer customers a substantial rebate on the purchase of VistaSource and Red Hat Linux products. Customers who purchase Applixware Office for Linux v5.0 and Red Hat Standard 6.2 prior to June 30, 2000 can submit their proof-of-purchase by mail to receive a $25 rebate. The $25 rebate is a significant savings over the suggested list price of the two products, $99 and $29 for Applixware Office and Red Hat Standard 6.2, respectively. Customers may purchase the featured products through retail stores and various online resellers."

"Applixware Office for Linux v5.0 is VistaSource's flagship product, and the leading, full-featured, native office suite available for Linux. When paired with the market-leading Red Hat Standard 6.2 OS, the result is a fast, efficient and stable Linux desktop solution at a fraction of the cost of Windows and Microsoft Office."

"Organizations have realized the viability of Linux as a server solution, and are now beginning to evaluate Linux for the desktop. Early adopters of Linux on the desktop have experienced significant productivity gains from the more stable operating environment and have also benefitted from a reduced total cost of ownership, over the deployment of the standard Microsoft solution," stated RJ Grandpre, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at VistaSource."
