FOR RELEASE JULY 27, 1998

Tenon Enhances UNIX for Power Macintosh & Lowers Price

POSIX-Certified Mach/BSD UNIX for Power Macs Available with Dramatic Price
Reduction and New Features

Santa Barbara, CA, July 27, 1998. Tenon Intersystems is shipping an update
to its award-winning UNIX for Power Macs. Power MachTen 4.1.1 is a
POSIX-compliant, BSD 4.4 UNIX, with a Mach kernel foundation, that operates
in concert with the Macintosh Operating System. The new Power MachTen 4.1.1
release includes updated software development tools, enhanced performance
and security, and a dramatic price reduction.

Power MachTen 4.1.1 includes a native fast file system, an enhanced suite
of UNIX software development tools based on the latest GNU gcc 2.8.1,
including a validated Ada compiler, C, Objective-C, C++, Fortran and Java
(kaffe), and a high-performance X11R6 display and development environment
with an OpenGL option. MachTen is a multiuser system with remote login
capabilities that supports SUN’s Network Information Service (NIS+),
includes standard UNIX filesharing (NFS), a full complement of UNIX
networking services (Apache web service, DNS bind, FTP service, mail and
POP mail), a suite of popular scripting tools (Perl, tcl/tk, MacPerl),
popular editors (vi, emacs, BBEdit Lite, Alpha), and hundreds of standard
UNIX applications and utilities, including secure shell.

MachTen is a powerful UNIX development platform that is being used by third
party vendors to bring new solutions to the Macintosh. By licensing Tenon’s
UNIX libraries, developers have been able to bring sophisticated UNIX
software to MacOS, even in advance of Rhapsody or MacOS X. MachTen is being
used by web developers to create Apache modules for Tenon’s top-performing
MacOS web server, WebTen.

Power MachTen can be purchased either directly from Tenon or as part of a
G3 UNIX Workstation bundle from FGM, SciTech International, and others. The
software is US$495 for corporations or individuals. The academic price is
$250. The OpenGL option is $199; academic, $149. Quantity discounts are
available.

Tenon has been producing innovative UNIX, X, and networking software for
Apple platforms since 1989. In 1991, Tenon’s MachTen was a MacUser Editors
Choice Finalist for “Best Connectivity Software”. In 1994, MachTen was
selected by UNIX World’s Open Computing magazine as “A Best Product of the
Year”. In 1998, MachTen became the basis of the “G3 UNIX Workstation”.
