InsynQ and Win4Lin Cooperate on Linux Desktop Hosting Project

Companies to Highlight Development Project at LinuxWorld San Francisco, August 9-11, 2005

TACOMA, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 4, 2005 -- InsynQ, Inc. (OTC BB: INSN), a premier provider of Internet-delivered online business and accounting solutions, announced today it is working cooperatively with Win4Lin to develop broad application hosting capabilities on the Linux platform for individuals or enterprises.

Currently, users who want to take advantage of anytime-anywhere computing use InsynQ's hosting services, accessing such popular Windows-based applications as Intuit QuickBooks Pro® or Microsoft Office®. InsynQ sees potential for lower-cost delivery of hosting services by taking advantage of the Linux-platform capabilities and the Win4Lin application environment, while concurrently broadening the service platform to include hosted Linux desktop and application offerings.

"The market has already proven the value of hosted application services," said Joanie Mann, Executive Vice President of InsynQ. "We believe it may be possible to further reduce the platform costs of hosting by running Linux as the underlying OS for some deliveries, and using Win4Lin to enable the use of certain Windows applications in the environment."

"We were one of the first companies to launch application hosting services for Windows, and now we see value in creating additional, alternative, hosting environments with Linux," added John Gorst, President and CEO of InsynQ. "The same philosophy we have with applications -- that one size does not fit all -- rings true with platform services, as well. We intend to offer the choice that the market wants and needs."

"Hosting Windows applications on Linux infrastructure combines the best of both worlds giving end users even more benefit from adopting highly available and mobile applications," said Jim Curtin, President and CEO, Win4Lin, Inc. "Using Win4Lin for hosted virtual desktops offers increased security, reliability and lower administrative costs for enterprises allowing them to fix their desktop computing costs as demonstrated by InsynQ's managed application services."

Both companies are exhibiting at LinuxWorld San Francisco, August 9-11, 2005, and will provide more information about the project.
