Business Wire: Penguin Computing — Leading Provider of Linux-based E-commerce Solutions for Internet-driven Businesses — Announces Record Sales

“Penguin Computing, ( www.penguincomputing.com ), the nation’s
largest and fastest-growing retailer of Linux-only systems,
reported today that its 4th quarter sales of Linux-based e-commerce
solutions to Internet companies have increased by 400 percent over
the 3rd quarter of 1998. 1st quarter 1999 numbers are expected even
more impressive. In less than a year, the company has attracted the
attention of such high-profile customers as Amazon.com
(Nasdaq:AMZN), Excite (Nasdaq:XCIT), Viacom (AMEX:VIA), Paramount,
Salon Magazine, and Slashdot, who all use Penguin Computing Linux
Systems for building reliable web and database infrastructure.”

“Penguin Computing attributes its growing success to its strict
focus on Linux-based systems, as opposed to most of its
competitor’s, who only sell Linux as a sideline. The company also
offers a 24 hour, 7 day-a-week technical support center and on-site
technical support staffed by Linux programmers, engineers and
systems designers.”
