"Progeny Linux Systems announces that it has completed its first round of financing. The new company has received seed capital through a private placement. Founded by Ian Murdock and Bruce Perens, two leading Linux developers, Progeny has begun development of a technology that challenges traditional models of network computing."

"Building on Debian GNU/Linux, Progeny is developing a technology tentatively known as Linux NOW (Network of Workstations). Ian Murdock, president and CEO of Progeny, explains, "Both workstation environments and centralized computers have advantages. Workstation environments are scalable, flexible and affordable. Centralized computers make sharing resources easy, and are simple to maintain. Our goal is to combine the best features of both."

"Murdock goes on to say, "Linux NOW turns a network of workstations into a single, seamless system. With only one system to manage, instead of hundreds, system administration becomes simpler. Security is improved. With files and other resources shared across the entire system, the user's environment becomes a unified whole. In Linux NOW, the network and workstation will meet in a way you've never seen before."
