Rhapsody Gets Positive Response From
Seeded Developers

CUPERTINO, California--Oct. 13, 1997-- Apple Computer Inc's Rhapsody
Developer Release has received rave reviews from the software developers
who were seeded with an early version. These developers were given an early
version of the software to test the application development environment and
create the demonstration software applications shipping with the operating
system.

Feedback from these developers included:

AAA+ Software
"Using Rhapsody and the tools we built on top of it, we are now able to
develop apps on Rhapsody and deploy them on Windows NT without any
compiling or linking under Windows. For us, Rhapsody on the Mac is a dream
come true." Werner Staringer Founder AAA+ Software

Anderson Financial Systems, Inc.
"For software developers, Rhapsody offers the enormous benefit of deploying
dynamic, full-featured applications across multiple platforms with a single
set of source code. For end users involved with content creation, the
advantage of running a unified imaging model--PostScript on all output
devices, including the screen--is equally compelling. Our PasteUp page
layout and WriteUp word processing applications already demonstrate why
graphics and publishing professionals will find Rhapsody to be an
attractive proposition." Gregory H. Anderson Founder and CEO, Anderson
Financial Systems, Inc.

Caffeine Software
"OPENSTEP and Rhapsody are the most advanced development tools I have ever
used. TIFFany, our high-end image processor, was developed for Rhapsody in
record time compared to other products. Once when asked to give a demo on
NT, about 10 hours before the demo, I just recompiled and it worked. Try to
do this with any other development environments. TIFFany's unmatched
feature set was to a good part made possible by the Rhapsody operating
system which allows the programmer to focus only on what makes his
application unique". Stan Jirman President, Caffeine Software

Dantz
"Rhapsody's biggest strength is the overall elegance of the underlying
operating system and the way threads, processes, memory, and concurrent I/O
come together. Rhapsody's infrastructure makes it considerably easier to
develop high-performance software than with other platforms." Richard Zulch
Chief Technology Officer Dantz Development Corporation

Omni Development, Inc.
"Without Rhapsody, there would be no OmniWeb. The Yellow Box toolkits have,
in effect, written 90 percent of our code for us, so we can concentrate on
writing the parts of our app that are different from every other app,
rather than spending our time fighting with the windowing system or writing
the same data structures over and over. Rhapsody not only provides the best
class library in existence, it also provides a framework for organizing
applications as they are being written, keeping even huge apps manageable.
Rhapsody enables small teams to create world-class applications." Wil
Shipley President, Omni Development, Inc.

P & L Systems
"Rhapsody gives us the power to quickly develop robust, commercial grade
applications on systems with unparalleled ease of use, and deploy with
equal facility on Macintosh, the Web or Microsoft operating systems. Mesa,
the leading Rhapsody spreadsheet, would have been impossible to develop on
any other platform." Paul Lynch Managing Director, P & L Systems

Stone Design Corp.
"The ease, elegance and integration of the Rhapsody Development environment
make it the first truly cross-platform deployment system. Create, our next
generation drawing app, leverages on this rich set of objects and performs
identically under Windows as on Rhapsody, compiled using the same source
tree. This conclusively proves to me that the Yellow Box delivers today
what other systems only promise to deliver tomorrow." Andrew Stone CEO,
Stone Design Corp.

VVI Data Control Specialists
"Apple's Rhapsody is unique in that it is fast, robust and scales both in
terms of performance and deployment base. Rhapsody also has first-class
rapid application development (RAD) capabilities built into it. VVI-DCS has
combined those features with our OpenGraph software to provide compelling
and unique data reporting RAD solutions. OpenGraph is currently being used
by our customers to monitor billion of dollars worth of products across the
globe. Because of Rhapsody's cross-platform capabilities we can now offer
that same market-proven OpenGraph software to nearly all modern desktop
computers. The combination of so many exceptional advantages is made
available only with Apple's Rhapsody." John Brilhart, Chief Technical
Officer VVI Data Control Specialists (VVI-DCS)

Yrrid Incorporated
"Using Rhapsody Yrrid can happily focus on its own technologies, and deploy
on Rhapsody, Windows NT or 95, and soon Mac OS, in addition to server
solutions on Solaris and HP-UX. Because Yarrid is confident of Rhapsody and
its success, it has made a serious investment by bringing it robust
terminal emulation software to Rhapsody." Christopher LLoyd Chief Technical
Officer, Yrrid Incorporated

Metrowerks Inc.
Metrowerks, although not included with the CD, will be delivering Rhapsody
products shortly. "We're extremely pleased with Apple's progress on
Rhapsody and excited about the new opportunities that Rhapsody will provide
Apple developers. We're working closely with Apple to provide Metrowerks
Codewarrior and Metrowerks Latitude technologies for Rhapsody and will
deploy the first version of Latitude for Rhapsody as well as our
Rhapsody-hosted PowerPC compiler tools almost simultaneously with the
introduction of the Rhapsody Developer Release". Greg Galanos President and
Chief Technology Officer Metrowerks Inc.

Apple Computer, Inc. ignited the personal computer revolution in the 1970s
with the Apple II, and reinvented the personal computer in the 1980s with
the Macintosh. Apple is now recommitted to its original mission - to bring
the best personal computing products and support to students, educators,
designers, scientists, engineers, businesspersons and consumers in over 140
