"We are informed that participants in the Linux industry have attempted to influence participants in the markets in which we sell our products to
reduce or eliminate the amount of our products and services that they purchase. They have been somewhat successful in those efforts and similar

participants in our marketplace and we may lose support from such participants. Any of the foregoing could adversely affect our position in the
marketplace and our results of operations. "
