Apr 11, 2001, 01:00 ET from Trolltech

    SAN FRANCISCO, Embedded Systems Conference, April 11 /PRNewswire/ --
 LynuxWorks(TM) and Trolltech are pleased to announce the availability of
 Trolltech's Qt/Embedded for LynuxWorks' BlueCat(TM) Linux. The new agreement
 bundles Qt/Embedded with LynuxWorks' BlueCat Linux. LynuxWorks will resell and
 offer professional services, as well as work with Trolltech to ensure that
 Qt/Embedded is fully supported. Trolltech and LynuxWorks will also pursue
 joint marketing and sales efforts.
     "We are thrilled to offer our customers the Qt/Embedded software for
 BlueCat Linux," said Bob Morris, vice president of marketing for LynuxWorks.
 "With the explosion of consumer devices requiring our embedded operating
 systems, this type of GUI is going to help embedded developers who haven't had
 this level of sophistication."
     "We are very pleased that Qt/Embedded is being seamlessly integrated into
 BlueCat Linux," said Haavard Nord, Trolltech CEO. "We are excited that Qt can
 now support Linux platforms in the embedded market, just as it does on the
 desktop."
     Qt/Embedded provides developers with the tools they need to create
 stunning graphical user interfaces for embedded applications. Qt/Embedded is a
 C++ GUI toolkit and windowing system that brings the full power of Qt, and all
 of its advantages, to embedded Linux systems. It combines small size, rich
 functionality, and the ability to build code in familiar environments to allow
 programmers to quickly create solutions for embedded systems. Porting existing
 Qt-based applications to Qt/Embedded can be done quickly and efficiently,
 usually only requiring a simple cross-compile.
 
     Price and Availability
     Trolltech's Qt/Embedded for LynuxWorks' BlueCat(TM) Linux is available
 now. The price is configuration and volume dependent.
