    AUSTIN, Texas and SANTA CRUZ, Calif., Oct. 3 /PRNewswire/ --
 NeTraverse Inc., the leading provider of thin-client software solutions on
 Linux and Intel-based Unix systems, and Tarantella, Inc. (Nasdaq:   TTLA), a
 leading supplier of web infrastructure software, have joined forces to deliver
 a full-featured, high-performance, thin-client solution for Windows
 application environments.  It improves performance, simplifies and reduces the

     "Our mission is to bring software solutions to market that transform the
 cost and management of IT infrastructures," said James Curtin, president and
 CEO of NeTraverse.  "The total cost of ownership for desktop computing has
 become increasingly difficult for the majority of organizations today.
 Enterprises are looking for ways to improve productivity and reduce the cost
 and complexity of IT management.  Together with the Tarantella software, our
 solution provides a thin-client and virtual desktop platform that dramatically
 lowers costs and improves the user experience."
     NeTraverse Server Standard Edition leverages the Linux server platform to
 deliver Windows application services to any network-connected device,
 providing a Linux alternative to the Citrix-style server-based thin-client
 computing model.  The NeTraverse solution provides centralized management,
 optimized resource deployment and network integration of Windows applications
 hosting and deployment.  This provides more control and flexibility in
 delivering Windows applications over a network, and makes desktop management
 more efficient and less complex, allowing users to access their data and
 applications anytime, anywhere.
     Tarantella software improves performance, adds security and wide-area
 remote and nomadic access and administration capabilities, and simplifies
 overall system management.  The solution is currently in production at the
 Deutsche Bahn -- German Railway.  "The idea that we can to publish Microsoft
 applications, from Berlin, with the Merge [NeTraverse] emulation, running
 under Caldera(R) Open Unix and Tarantella, to four hundred of users without
 any modification of the local environment is fascinating," stated
 Hans-Joerg Kuntzsch of the Deutsche Bahn.
     "Enterprise customers are seeking relief from high IT overheads, but they
 also want to free up IT resources to improve business processes to make them
 more responsive and competitive," said Dennis Adams, vice president of
 marketing for Tarantella.  "We're delighted to have NeTraverse as a partner,
 and our software included as a key component in a timely, compelling solution
 to real customer problems."
     Tarantella Enterprise 3 software provides secure, local, remote and
 nomadic access to and management of Windows(R), Web, Java, mainframe,
 AS/400(R), Linux(R) and UNIX(R) based systems, applications and data.  It
 optimizes performance of LAN, WAN, Internet and dialup lines to expand the
 range and reach of corporate resources, and improve the quality of the user
 experience.  Because it allows control of large, complex, geographically
 distributed environments to be streamlined, centralized and simplified, it
 gives companies the flexibility they need to accommodate rapid corporate
 change, technological advancement and expanding access needs.
