Xandros to Launch Xandros Surfside Linux

New Linux Desktop Product Features the Latest Internet Telephony and Security

BOSTON, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 02/16/05 -- LinuxWorldExpo -- Xandros, the leading developer of easy-to-use Linux solutions, today announced the preview of Xandros SurfSide Linux at the Boston LinuxWorld Expo. The new desktop product is loaded with free Skype-to-Skype calling worldwide and a Plantronics USB headset combo, "ready to plug in and call." SurfSide further offers a complete Internet experience with Firefox web browsing, Thunderbird e-mailing, and a host of security features such as Xandros Antivirus, the Xandros Firewall Wizard, encrypted home folders, and secure access to virtual private networks.

"Going on-line has deteriorated due to the frustration of dealing with viruses, spam, spyware, and pop-up ads. Xandros' SurfSide Linux reclaims the joy and excitement of using the net, connecting with friends, and having instant information at your fingertips," said Andreas Typaldos, Xandros CEO. "Best of all, the box comes with a Plantronics headset that you simply plug into your USB port; then you can call your Skype contacts anywhere in the world for free."
