TurboLinux, Making Advances in Business Use,

Gives Boost to XML Application Development

    BOSTON and TOKYO, Dec. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- TurboLinux Japan and Infoteria
 Corporation, the XML Software Company, announced an agreement to bundle
 Infoteria's high-performance XML development platform, iPEX 2.0(TM), with
 Turbolinux Developer Edition.  Through this alliance, both companies hope to
 promote the development of XML-based business applications on the Linux
 platform, which continues to gain market strength.
     Turbolinux remains the developer's choice in Japan.  Kuniteru Kojima,
 President of TurboLinux Japan notes, "Last fiscal year, TurboLinux achieved a
 growth rate of 450%, and was recognized as the fastest growing Linux company
 worldwide.  Recently, many businesses and organizations have decided to use
 Linux as their core operating system.  Because of this, it has become
 increasingly important to provide a development environment for XML
 applications.  We think that bundling iPEX with Turbolinux will lead to the
 rapid acceleration of full-fledged Linux-based business applications."
     Yoichiro Hirano of Infoteria Corporation said, "Infoteria's Processing
 Engine for XML (iPEX) is a high performance, cross-platform, XML development
 platform that will cut your development time and reduce your development
 costs.  iPEX provides  many XML processing functions, certainly more than any
 other XML parser in the marketplace today.  To date, iPEX has been
 successfully used in many business systems, such as Increment P Corporation's,
 a subsidiary of Pioneer Corp., best-selling MapFan digital mapping software,
 as well as in NTT Data's corporate purchasing support service, OrderIt.  We
 are certain that bundling iPEX with Turbolinux, which today towers over the
 Japanese Linux market, will greatly accelerate the development of XML
 applications on Linux platforms."
     TurboLinux chose Infoteria's latest version of iPEX, iPEX 2.0, for the
 Turbolinux Developer Edition.  Infoteria's iPEX provides all the critical
 functionality needed by applications that handle XML data, including
 validating and non-validating parsers, support for DOM, SAX, XPath and XSLT.
 The Japanese versions of Turbolinux, Turbolinux Pro, Turbolinux Server, and
 Turbolinux Cluster Server are also planned to include iPEX.  The Japanese
 version of Turbolinux Workstation 6.0 Limited Edition, the first product to
 have iPEX for Linux bundled with it, shipped in October 2000.
