INDELIBLE BLUE NOW OFFERS LINUX SUPPORT
Major Reseller to Provide Technical Support for all Linux Distributions

RALEIGH, NC -- March 11, 1999 -- One of the country's top marketers of OS/2
hardware and software products and an IBM/Lotus direct channel partner
today introduced Linux technical support, adding a centralized base of
knowledge for most popular Linux distributions to its OS/2 support
services.

Indelible Blue also offers custom pre-loaded Linux desktop and server
systems, as well as multiple OS pre-loaded systems with Linux, OS/2 and/or
Windows NT/98.  Indelible Blue also carries a growing line of commercially
available Linux software applications and development tools.  With
technical support, the company continues its movement to becoming a full
service Linux provider.

Single incident, multi-incident packs, and time-based Linux support plans
are available, providing flexibility to fit most individual and business
needs. Initially, support hours are Monday through Friday, 9:00am-5:00pm
(EST).  Customers may submit questions via the phone at 800-901-8258,
e-mail at [email protected], or the Web at
http://www.indelible-blue.com/linux/support.

"In order to become more accepted in the mainstream, Linux needs more
support for users and businesses who have not previously had experience
with Linux or other Open Source software," says Buck Bohac, president of
Indelible Blue. "Users from other platforms who may not be familiar with
UNIX, much less the Open Source model, have a different set of needs and
concerns.  We want to help these users become more comfortable using the
Linux environment by offering them ready-to-run hardware,
commercially-backed software solutions and support packages to help them
get started quickly and easily."
