Author: Robin 'Roblimo' Miller

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - Our company, the leader in world-changing technology, is about to debut a revolutionary new open source-based solution that will change the IT marketplace paradigm forever. We expect wide acceptance among businesses ranging from Global 1000 companies to work-at-home network marketers, not to mention millions of individual computer users.Our world-class management team has over 100 years of collective experience developing innovative products and bringing them to market.

"Think of the way agriculture made civilization possible, and you'll have some idea of the effect we believe our new offering will have on the way people work with computers and the Internet," says our senior assistant vice president of marketing, who holds a Ph.D in holistic studies from the University of Leading-Edge Advancement.

Our state-of-the-art licensing program allows OEMs worldwide to leverage our exclusive, patent-pending proprietary developments in their own software stack, creating an unparalleled synergy for repurposing mission-critical deployments. We are firm believers in open source, so we have taken the unique step of protecting the open source software that is the heart of our product by patenting it so competitors can't use it to make inferior versions.
