    SALT LAKE CITY, April 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Linux NetworX, a provider of
 powerful and easy-to-manage Linux cluster computing solutions, announced today
 it has been named Regional and Utah Exporter of the Year by the U.S. Small
 Business Administration (SBA).  According to SBA, Linux NetworX was selected
 based upon the growth of its exports to international markets and its strategy
 to continue growing these markets into the future.
     "Linux NetworX has had enormous success delivering our cluster solutions
 to enterprise companies and large organizations domestically -- the Exporter
 of the Year award demonstrates our ability to spread this success to
 international markets as well," said Glen Lowry, president and CEO of Linux
 NetworX.  "The demand for high performance computing power across the planet,
 combined with the popularity of the Linux operating system internationally,
 presents numerous market growth opportunities for Linux NetworX."
     SBA winners are nominated by someone outside of the organization and
 reviewed by a panel of judges.  As a statewide winner, Linux NetworX then
 competed with other state winners from Colorado, Montana, Wyoming, North
 Dakota and South Dakota, to win the regional award.
     "It's quite an accomplishment for Linux NetworX to be named Utah Exporter
 of the Year, but to then go on and win the regional award validates the
 company is doing a lot of things right," said Stan Nakano, district director
 for SBA.  "Nominations were judged based upon increased export sales, creative
 overseas marketing, effective solutions to export-related problems, and
 efforts to assist other companies with exporting."
     Clustered computing, the technology Linux NetworX specializes in, is a
 method of linking multiple computers together to form a unified and more
 powerful system.  The result is an extremely powerful, reliable, scalable
 compute engine that can match the performance of supercomputers.
     Linux NetworX and EBIZ Enterprises (OTC Bulletin Board:   EBIZ) recently
 announced a planned merger.  EBIZ is a manufacturer of specialized computer
 appliance servers and the leading vendor-neutral provider of Open Source
 products and solutions.  The merger is expected to be completed during second
 quarter 2001.
