Scalix Wins InfoWorld Best Open Source Collaboration Award

Scalix Named Best Open Alternative to Microsoft Exchange

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - August 5, 2008) - Scalix, the award-winning Linux email, calendaring and messaging company, today announced that it has received the prestigious 2008 InfoWorld "Bossie" award for the best open source collaboration alternative to Microsoft Exchange.

After a highly competitive review process, InfoWorld concluded: "'Enterprise' is the watchword here, since Scalix does a fine job using Linux clustering and failover features for maximum uptime. Scalix's AJAX console makes administration a snap, while the included Scalix ActiveSync lets wireless devices connect directly to the server for push e-mail, contact, and calendar updates."

"We are honored that our Scalix alternative to Microsoft Exchange has received this prestigious InfoWorld 'Bossie' award two years in a row," said Andreas Typaldos, Xandros CEO. "As Scalix continues to evolve into a central enterprise collaboration platform and information hub easily accessed via universal clients of choice, I'm sure it will have many more honors to come."
