Dan Burcaw, CTO writes "Terra Soft Asserts Commitment to the Apple G5 Platform

Loveland, Colorado -- 11 November 2003 -- Terra Soft Solutions, Inc., leading
developer of integrated PowerPC Linux solutions, today announced preliminary
support for Apple's Power Mac G5.

The Power Mac G5, fueled by the IBM PowerPC 970, provides an all-new 64-bit
architecture featuring an industry leading 1GHz front-side bus with dual 2GHz
microprocessors and up to 8GB DDR SDRAM. The G5 delivers a break-through
price/performance ratio that shatters previous notions of traditional
large-scale cluster installations.

"Terra Soft firmly believes the IBM PowerPC 970 technology, core to the Apple
Power Mac G5, is a leap-forward platform. The solution we are providing today
is just the first step of our commitment to a robust and powerful Linux
solution that takes full advantage of the amazing hardware now available from
Apple," states Dan Burcaw, Chief Technology Officer of Terra Soft.
