Adding to the growing list of OEMs who see the expansion of Linux desktop market, Dialogue Technology chose Lycoris Desktop/LX as the vehicle to target the less-technical customer and bring Linux to a broader audience.

"More and more system builders are looking for a way to break Microsoft's stranglehold on the desktop market," said Joseph Cheek, CEO and Founder of Lycoris. "Dialogue Technology's decision to pre-install Desktop/LX Tablet Edition on its FlyBook notebooks will help bring choice to thousands of consumers world wide."

"We have seen a huge demand for Linux pre-installed on our FlyBook notebook line since they first debuted earlier this year," said Jack Lee, President of Dialogue Technology Corporation. "Together with Lycoris, we can now fulfill this demand for our customers worldwide. Thanks to Desktop/LX Tablet Edition, the FlyBook is primed to take a leading position in the ultra-portable computing market."

Desktop/LX Tablet Edition is the world's first alternative to Microsoft Windows® XP Tablet Edition, and establishes Lycoris as a Linux technology leader in a space previously only inhabited by Microsoft. Lycoris has developed special technology for this platform, including a keyboard-free user interface, gesture-based handwriting recognition, touch screen driver integration, screen rotating support, advanced power management features and USB CD-ROM installation enhancements. Desktop/LX Tablet Edition is tailored specifically for OEMs in the tablet PC space and Lycoris is working hand in hand with Dialogue Technology to ensure an enjoyable customer experience. Desktop/LX Tablet Edition will allow Dialogue to maintain strong profit margins while providing a tangible value to their customers.

LinuxWorld, San Francisco - Thursday, August 5, 2004 - Lycoris, the leading provider of desktop Linux solutions for the consumer market, today announced that MoBitS Electronics, Inc., an innovative designer and manufacturer of mobile computing solutions based in Taiwan, has selected Desktop/LX Tablet Edition as an alternative to Windows® XP for its entire range of Tablet computers. Adding to the growing list of OEMs who see the expansion of Linux desktop market, MoBitS chose Lycoris Desktop/LX to target the less-technical customer and bring Linux to a broader audience.

"The Tablet PC platform has been held back by the lack of an alternative to Windows® XP Tablet Edition," said Joseph Cheek, CEO and Founder of Lycoris. "MoBitS' decision to offer Desktop/LX Tablet Edition pre-installed on its Tablet PCs will lower the cost barriers put up by Microsoft, and help bring the benefits of Tablet computing to thousands of consumers and business users world wide."

"We are very excited about working with Lycoris to bundle Desktop/LX Tablet Edition," said Starry Chen, CEO of MoBitS. "Desktop/LX includes all of the features our customer base is asking for at a substantial savings over Microsoft. When we bundle Windows® XP Tablet Edition, Microsoft ends up making more for each system we manufacture than we do. Lycoris allows us to lower the system cost substantially and bring value to our customers."
