Apr 24, 2001, 01:00 ET from Parabon Computation, Inc.

    FAIRFAX, Va., April 24 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ --
 Parabon(TM) Computation, Inc., a leading provider of distributed computing
 solutions, expands its global support by announcing the release of Parabon's
 Pioneer(TM) compute engine for Linux. Available immediately, Linux users
 worldwide can download this free software and instantly apply their idle
 computing power toward nonprofit research projects and gain compensation when
 their idle computing power is used in support of paying clients. With this
 announcement, Parabon becomes the only commercial provider of general-purpose
 Internet distributed computing to offer a Linux compute engine today.
     Supporting the Frontier(TM) distributed computing platform across the
 Internet and within the enterprise, Pioneer is now available for Linux RedHat,
 Mandrake and SuSe as well as Windows, which has been available since June of
 2000. All Linux and Windows versions of Pioneer can be downloaded free from
 Parabon's Web site at http://www.parabon.com .
     "Linux users have always been ahead of the technology curve; and they have
 long understood the potential of distributed computing and have helped nurture
 its growth," explained Parabon President and CEO Steven L. Armentrout, Ph.D.
 "This is the first in a series of new releases that support an ever-increasing
 range of hardware and operating systems to deliver platform-independent
 distributed computation to our clients and partners."
     Previously tested by select Linux users around the world, now all Linux
 users can join the over 23,000 participants in Parabon's distributed computing
 network. Whether across the Internet or behind the firewall of a corporate
 intranet, companies and research organizations are able to safely, securely
 and unobtrusively tap into the idle capacity of computers ranging from
 desktops to high-performance workstations, and eventually mainframes. This is
 accomplished by using Parabon's Frontier platform, which processes large
 computational problems and breaks them down into smaller tasks that are
 distributed to individual computers. After an individual computer finishes
 processing a task, the encrypted results are returned to the user and new
 tasks are assigned.
 
     About Parabon Computation, Inc.
     For organizations with computationally challenging problems, Parabon
 delivers unprecedented computing power -- on demand -- to any desktop
 computer. This distributed computing solution harnesses the power of idle
 computers either across the Internet or inside a corporate firewall. Frontier

 development environment for easy development and deployment of distributed
 computing applications. For additional information about Parabon and its
