    SAN JOSE, April 10 /PRNewswire/ -- SDExpo Booth #907 -- CodeWeavers, Inc.,
 the leading Windows-to-Linux software developer and consultancy, played a
 critical part in the development of Buhl Data Services' Tax2001 Software for
 Linux by supplying important mentoring and technical services, officials from
 both companies said today.
     Tax2001 is Buhl's popular personal tax preparation software for German
 taxpayers.  CodeWeavers and Buhl Data Services spent less than ten weeks
 porting the software from Windows to Linux.  Tax2001 began shipping in
 February of this year, and is available through retailers or online directly
 through Buhl.
     "Buhl is pleased to acknowledge the vital services provided by CodeWeavers
 in bringing Tax2001 to the Linux market.  By lending its ongoing expertise and
 support, CodeWeavers has helped make Tax2001 a robust and powerful tool for
 personal tax preparation here in Germany," said Thorsten Vogel, (CTO) of Buhl
 Data Services.
     "CodeWeavers is proud to have played such an instrumental role in the
 development of Tax2001," said Jeremy White, president of CodeWeavers.
 "Tax2001 is a major advancement in the growth and maturation of Linux desktop
 software.  We look forward to helping quality software companies like Buhl, as
 well as other world-class corporations, make the technological leap from
 Windows to Linux."
     Throughout the project, a team of CodeWeavers programmers mentored and
 assisted Buhl developers as they ported the software to the Linux operating
 system.  Tax2001 for Linux employs a subset of the features found in the
 Windows version, and is designed to remain compatible with future versions.
