accessible open source scripting language (SHELF). The Company’s

desktop and over the Internet. The key components of its strategy
are to leverage its Applixware and Applix Anyware technology in the
Linux and ASP (Application Service Provider) markets and promote
the development of additional applications and enhancements by
leveraging its CoSource.com and SmartBeak.com websites.

“The Company had previously announced that it plans to establish
its Linux Division as an independent company…”
