"Advants, Inc., a national system of public Internet access terminals, today announced that it has signed an agreement to add the FreeDesk.com Virtual Office Suite, on-line storage and PC Share to all Advants Internet terminals. PC Share, a FreeDesk exclusive, allows the customer to access files on any Internet-connected PC, bringing home and office data as close to the customer as the nearest Advants public access Internet terminal."

"Internet users can simply go to any Advants terminal regardless of their physical location and access their own files on the FreeDesk Virtual Office Suite server or on any Internet-connected PC, including their own home or business computer," said Greg Johnson, president and CEO of Advants, Inc. "No laptop required, and no need to search for that Internet plug-in. This service will also introduce Linux to Advants users, a systems operating platform we plan to feature in the near future."

"In addition, by teaming with Advants, FreeDesk.com's Virtual Office is available to people that don't have an Internet connection, or even a computer."
