"GraphOn...announced it has established alliances that it believes will afford millions of users throughout China Internet and network access to powerful server-based applications and speed adoption of Linux(R) as China's operating system of choice. GraphOn(TM) Bridges(TM) software is highly scalable and capable of delivering server-based Linux, UNIX(R) and Windows(R) applications, without changing a single line of the applications' code, to anyone with a PC or computing device over virtually any connection, such as a local area network, the Internet or dial-up access to the server. It is the sole thin client software technology suite that can deliver Linux, UNIX and Windows applications from centrally managed servers to China's vast installed base of aging Windows PCs...."

"Indicating the need to implement server-based computing rapidly, Beijing Concord Colleges Chairman, Francis Pang, stated, "GraphOn Bridges technology offers a means to rapidly deliver Linux, UNIX and Windows applications to more than five million students in the next three years." Mr. Pang also said he plans to use Sundiro's security and authentication software with GraphOn's delivery technology in the Beijing Concord school program, which will extend the server-based curriculum far beyond the Beijing campus over the Internet and intranet connections. Mr. Pang spoke of China's need to deploy the latest applications to large numbers of users, beginning with the education sector, which consists of up to 260 million students across China in grades K through college."
