Power On Software Updates ACTION GoMac

Maintenance Release Offers Improved Memory Management

Minneapolis - May 3, 1999 -- Power On Software announced today that
it had released Version 2.0.1 of ACTION GoMac, the Macintosh Task
Bar. Since its initial release, GoMac has consistently been at the
very top of downloads by Mac users around the world. Reviewers have
unanimously acclaimed GoMac's ease of use and outstanding aesthetics.
As former Editor-in-Chief of MacUser magazine Steven Bobker sees it,
"I'd be literally lost without GoMac. Windows has exactly one great
feature: its Task Bar. GoMac gives the Mac an even better Task Bar."
As Macworld's June, 1999 issue notes, "GoMac's convenience is hard to
resist." In awarding GoMac a perfect rating, Tom Cheek of Tucows
observed, "This program should be on every Mac user's machine." The
Mac Report agreed, stating that "The best thing to come out of
Windows is the Task Bar along the bottom of the screen. GoMac takes
this rare Microsoft innovation and fine-tunes it for the Macintosh
communityGoMac is far superior to the Finder and much easier on the
sanity."

The new release offers improvements in available memory notification
during application launching under low memory conditions. In
addition, the new version adds drag and drop support for Timbuktu Pro
and provides an improved installer, as well as enhanced support for
various Extension Managers, including Apple's latest version and
Conflict Catcher 8. Moreover, several internal improvements enhance
GoMac's overall performance.

GoMac implements an elegant, highly useful program bar and
customizable start menu on the Mac OS that provides a complete
launching and process management solution. Among its features, GoMac
offers: * One click opening of programs and documents through a
simple Drag and Dock setup

* Instant access to common system settings, file search, memory use,
and recent items

* A Program Bar with one-click process switching and program
minimization. The Program Bar displays all open programs with their
memory usage and allows them to be closed and hidden while in the
background.

* Convenient launch capability from a customizable Start Menu

* Full Drag and Drop support for both the Program Bar and Start Menu

* Mouseless task switching via an elegant Keyboard Switcher

* Ability to access application memory settings from the task bar
contextual menus, in keeping with OS 8.5's enhanced get info feature.

* A tastefully customizable start button for those Mac users who want
to avoid any semblance of Wintel dcor

* Ability to "minimize" background applications to a small icon near the clock

* Option to turn off the Start menu and use only the task bar

* Office 98 integration. Users with Office 98 installed will see a
Microsoft Office 98 item in their Start Menu for easy access to Word,
PowerPoint and Excel.

* Support for Apple's Control Strip technology

* Task bar with integrated clock and perpetual calendar for
instantaneous date reference

ACTION GoMac is available at Macwarehouse, MacZone, Club Mac, and
dealers and distributors worldwide. Electronic versions are also
available from BuyDirect.com and the Power On Software e-commerce
store. ACTION GoMac has a suggested retail price of $49.95 and an
estimated street price, after manufacturer's rebate, of $29.95.
Upgrades are free for owners of version 2. Owners of earlier versions
can obtain special upgrade pricing at the Power On website.

itself as a leader in utility software with its security product, On

utility of the year, Power On successfully launched its ACTION
Utilities line. To further its dominant position in the utilities
market, Power On acquired Now Utilities from Qualcomm Incorporated
and Norton DiskLock (now sold as DiskLock) from Symantec Corporation.
