    ATLANTA, Networld Interop, Oct. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- GraphOn, the world's
 leading supplier of thin client PC and Java-based X servers, today announced a
 bundling agreement with Syntax, the premier supplier of advanced network
 operating system and integration software.  With this agreement, Syntax will
 include in their TotalNET Advanced Server (TAS) distribution GO-Global(TM),
 GraphOn's thin client X server which provides access to UNIX/X applications
 from any MS Windows desktop over the LAN and over dialup.
     "We're extremely pleased about this new relationship between Syntax and
 GraphOn," said Zdravko Podolski, GraphOn's VP of OEM and Strategic Alliances.
 "The thin client, centrally managed architecture of both companies' product
 lines is extremely complementary.  Being bundled with TAS provides us with an
 excellent vehicle to customers that appreciate our lower-cost-of-ownership
     A free one-user license and unlimited 30-day license to GraphOn's
 GO-Global will be included with Syntax TAS 5.0.  GO-Global will be available
 via Syntax's worldwide OEM and distribution channels and to Syntax's installed
 user base of over 1 million users.
     "The inclusion of GO-Global with our TotalNET Advanced Server offers our
 customers the ability to further integrate their heterogeneous LAN systems
 with high performance UNIX applications," said Jack Smith, Syntax's Executive
 VP of Business Development and Marketing.  "This important intranet
 client/server technology is synergistic with our current and future intranet-
 enabled network integration products and offers our customers significant new
 benefits.  TAS bridges the proprietary protocol and data storage barriers
 between NT, NetWare, Macintosh, and UNIX systems.  GO-Global brings the power
 of traditional X servers to standard desktop PC's."
