desktopsites Announces Availability of Konect 5.0
Including Konect Launcher

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - March 23, 2005) - desktopsites Inc.
("desktopsites"), a rapidly emerging leader in access infrastructure
software, or serverware, for the small and mid-size business ("SMB")
market, today announced the North American availability of the industry
leading Konect Launcher as part of the latest version of Konect™ 5.0.

The Konect Launcher is a session-based, server-driven computing toolbar
that delivers all of the robust capabilities of the Konect remote access
desktop without the desktop footprint. Konect Launcher easily integrates
into an end user's computing desktop consuming minimal desktop real
estate and providing a seamless end user experience whether accessing
local or server-based computing resources.

"As more small and mid-size businesses deploy remote access solutions,
it is increasingly imperative that this new server-based computing
environment be as seamless, flexible, and simple to use as possible,"
says Alex Bethlehem, CEO of desktopsites. "While the Konect 5.0 Desktop
is an excellent remote access solution for more controlled computing
environments in mid-size businesses, the Konect Launcher now provides
the highest degree of flexibility and simplicity for small businesses
when end users are accessing local and server-based resources. With its
small footprint, integrated access to remote enterprise resources such
as software applications, web-based applications, content, documents,
data sources, and / or hosted services, and integrated authentication
capabilities, Konect Launcher eliminates the line between local and
server-based computing."

Konect 5.0 is a Java-based access infrastructure solution empowering
SMBs to provide desktop and remote access to all enterprise resources,
including applications, documents, content, data stores, and services,
running in a Windows 2000 or 2003 Server. With a simple and powerful
wizard-driven configuration environment and leveraging Java Web Start
technology, IT administrators for SMBs can deploy either configuration
in less than 30 minutes to provide access to IT infrastructure and
enterprise resources, personalized for each user's needs, with secure
connectivity over the Web.
