Lindows CEO Michael Robertson wins World Technology Award for Entertainment

Announced on July 22, 2002 at New York's historic Hudson Theater on
Broadway, the decision was the result of a six month long selection and
voting process in which 100 eminent authorities from across twenty
technology related fields drew up their list of potential nominees for
consideration by the World Technology Network's current membership of
430 leading technologists eligible to cast their votes.
James Clark, Chairman and Founder of the World Technology Network,
commented: "To win a World Technology Award reflects the esteem in
which peers hold your work - esteem not only for the technical
brilliance of your efforts but for the broader impact those efforts
will likely have on shaping the world in which we live. Through winning
this World Technology Award, I am delighted to welcome Michael
Robertson into the World Technology Network family."

The specific area of work for which Michael Robertson received the
acclaim of the World Technology Network membership was for his work
with the MP3.com.

"I knew that what we had at MP3.com was very special; we broke barriers
technologically and socially. MP3.com forced the industry to adopt a
new way of music delivery much in the same way, Lindows.com, my new
company, will revolutionize the software industry," stated Michael
Robertson, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Lindows.com, Inc. and
former Chief Executive Officer and Founder of MP3.com, Inc.

Now in its fourth year, the role of the World Technology Network is to
bring together the leading individuals and corporations from 20
technology related disciplines so that thoughts and knowledge can be
openly shared, new avenues explored, and new relationships developed.
Specific technology related disciplines linked together under the World
Technology Network umbrella are: arts, biotech, communication
technology, design, education, energy, environment, entertainment,
ethics, finance, health, IT hardware, IT software, law, marketing
communications, materials, journalism, policy, social
entrepreneurship, and space.

The 2002 World Technology Awards were held in association with Nasdaq,
Intel, Cisco Systems, Novartis, Time, Red Herring, Science and
International Herald Tribune and marked the final event at this year's
two-day World Technology Summit which took place at the Millennium
Conference Center (Millennium Broadway Hotel) and United Nations
headquarters.
