Subject: Metrowerks Embedded Strategy

In our mad scramble at Embedded Systems Conference West (which was a great
success for us), you may not have had access to the press releases we had
at the show and that were released to the Business Wire (23 of them!!)...
Below is the summary release...

------------------------------

METROWERKS ROLLS OUT EMBEDDED STRATEGY
AT ESC WEST/97 IN SAN JOSE

CodeWarrior Support for Embedded Systems Development Greatly Expanded

SAN JOSE, California - Metrowerks Inc. (NASDAQ: MTWKF, TSE/ME:MWK)
announced this week at the Embedded Systems Conference West/1997 in San
Jose, greatly expanded CodeWarrior support for embedded software
development, with over 20 press announcements covering all aspects of the
embedded software development tools market.

Metrowerks divides the embedded systems market into three core markets: the
proprietary operating system market; the RTOS/Windows CE market; and the
embedded Java technology market.

"Our mission is clear. Metrowerks wants to be a leader in the growing
embedded tools market by providing the same low-cost, highly-optimizing
integrated tools to embedded programmers that we have been providing to
desktop programmers for years," said Jean Belanger, Metrowerks Chairman and
CEO. "Our CodeWarrior all-in-one solution, a concept pioneered by
Metrowerks, will be the foundation upon which we build our embedded tools
business."

The CodeWarrior all-in-one solution for embedded programmers comprises two
key components:

- CodeWarrior IDE, which is a totally integrated development
environment
common to all CodeWarrior embedded and desktop products. The CodeWarrior
IDE contains a complete set of programming tools, including class browsers,
editors, a state-of-the-art project manager which obsoletes "make" files,
two-machine debuggers which support both source-level and assembly-level
debugging, and debug formats that include DWARF (Debug With Arbitrary
Record Format), Motorola S-Records, BDM, and JTAG.

- CodeWarrior highly optimizing C, C++, Java and assembler
compilers, which feature support for a variety of microprocessors,
including 68K, PowerPC, x86 and MIPS. The CodeWarrior compilers and linkers
support a variety of proprietary operating system object formats as well as
industry standard formats such as ELF and Microsoft COFF.

At ESC West, Metrowerks announced support for additional microprocessors,
new CodeWarrior releases for the proprietary operating systems already
supported, support for new real-time operating systems, planned support for
Windows CE 2.0, and a number of additional selling and marketing
arrangements with other embedded tools vendors.

35% of the company's revenues in R&D. Metrowerks has the resources to
create state-of-the-art development tools for embedded programmers. With a
fully developed IDE already available for desktop application development,
and currently used by over 100,000 registered users in 75 countries,
Metrowerks' CodeWarrior IDE development costs can be amortized over a
