Microsoft Office and Lotus Notes on any Linux desktop with Crossover Office 1.1

ST. PAUL, MN-(June 11, 2002)-CodeWeavers, Inc., a leading Windows-to-UNIX software developer, today unveiled CrossOver Office Version 1.1, the newest version of its breakthrough software solution that allows Linux and Unix users to operate Microsoft Office and Lotus Notes on their PCs without the Windows operating system.
 With Version 1.1, CodeWeavers is officially supporting both Microsoft
                       Outlook and Internet Explorer, in addition to the already-supported Microsoft
                       Word, Excel and PowerPoint, and IBM Lotus Notes. This enables organizations
                       to make the transition to a Linux desktop without having to completely replace
                       their internal systems. "With Outlook and Internet Explorer support, we feel that
                       we have rounded out the most important features of the Microsoft Office Suite,
                       and have made it simple and painless for an organization to adopt the Linux
                       desktop" said Jeremy White, founder and CEO of CodeWeavers.

                       Outlook and Internet Explorer Support in Multiple Languages.
                           Version 1.1 provides support for most Western languages, including
                       German, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, and many more. "The support
                       for Portuguese was something invaluable that will enable wide scale use for
                       both private and government institutions. It will close one of the last issues
                       preventing nationwide adoption of Linux," said Rodrigo Barbosa Chief Security
                       Officer of TIS, a Brazilian IT company.

                       CodeWeavers expects to complete support for double byte languages such as
                       Japanese, Chinese, and Korean in the near future, which will then complete
                       the CrossOver language support.

                       Best TrueType® Reproduction in Linux
                           CrossOver Office now includes the logic necessary to exactly reproduce
                       Apple TrueType fonts in Linux, so that all Windows fonts appear as cleanly
                       and crisply in CrossOver as they do in Windows. This extends to printed
                       documents which now precisely match those printed on Windows. Version 1.1
                       also provides a wide range of other bug fixes and enhancements, including
                       better support for document automation.

                           CrossOver Office is priced at $54.95 per user, with workgroup, site, and
                       enterprise license discounts available. For additional information, and to
