Connectix Teams with Red Hat for Linux on Macintosh

Introducing Connectix Virtual PC with Red Hat Linux, the easy-to-use Linux
solution for Mac users

SAN MATEO, Calif. February 15, 2000 Connectix Corporation, makers of
the best-selling and award-winning Virtual PC (VPC) family of products,
today announced the signing of a new OEM agreement with Red Hat Inc.
(NasdaqNM:RHAT), the leading provider of open source Linux operating
system solutions. Under this agreement, Connectix will ship a new version
of Virtual PC with Red Hat Linux pre-installed, bringing this popular
version of Linux, which is currently available only on PCs, to the Mac
users. The combination of Red Hat's open source expertise and Connectix's
PC emulation technology gives Macintosh customers access to the power and
control of open source Linux-based OSes, said Paul McNamura, director of
Enterprise Market Unit, Red Hat, Inc. Under this agreement, Macintosh
users will be able to easily use a PC version of Red Hat, right on their

The OEM Partnership

With the Connectix/Red Hat partnership, Connectix expands its VPC user base
while Red Hat opens up its Mac market. And, this agreement expands the
capability of the Mac, allowing the users to combine the ease and power of
the Mac and the Linux OS within one package. The benefits to the Mac users
are numerous: get two-computers-in-one, eliminate installation and set-up
headaches, easily switch between the two operating systems without having
to re-boot and take advantage of Virtual PC's friendly user interface.
With this partnership, we continue to build on our success as the leader
in cross-platform compatibility and provide yet another new OS capability
to the Mac platform. We are pleased to bring the leading brand name Linux
to the Macintosh users in a pre-installed, easy-to-use Virtual PC solution.
Now, Mac users can have Linux up and running in minutes while keeping their
current Mac OS just a mouse click away, said Michael Loftus, vice
president of Product Management, Connectix Corporation.

Connectix's Virtual PC Product Line

Connectix's Virtual PC product line bridges the compatibility gap between
Mac and PC environments by allowing Mac users to run PC applications,
access networks, and share files. Virtual PC 3.0 is currently available in
three versions: with PC-DOS, with Windows 95 and with Windows 98
pre-installed. Two new versions, with Red Hat Linux and with Windows 2000,
will begin shipping in March.

Connectix Corporation

Founded in 1988 and based in San Mateo, California, Connectix is a leader
in low cost, high-performance compatibility software, originally entering
the market with Virtual, a groundbreaking Macintosh-based product that
provided virtual memory. The ever-popular RAM Doubler and Speed Doubler
products were then launched in 1994 and 1995, respectively. In 1995,
Connectix introduced the industry's first tethered digital camera,
QuickCam, producing more than one million units before selling the hardware
business to Logitech in September 1998. The company continues to develop
innovative, award-winning products that allow computer users to use popular
software and hardware products from a variety of different platforms. In
1999, Connectix again broke the platform barrier by launching Connectix
Virtual Game Station which allows consumers to run many popular Sony
PlayStation games on their personal computers. Connectix remains focused
on new technologies and products that meet the demands of an emerging
multi-platform, internet-driven business environment. For more information
