Xandros and O3Spaces Team up to Deliver OpenDocument Collaboration, Management and Retention

NEW YORK, NY and GOUDA, THE NETHERLANDS -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 13, 2007 -- Xandros, Inc., the leading provider of easy-to-use Linux desktop, server and management solutions, and O3Spaces, B.V., provider of O3Spaces Workplace collaboration for OpenOffice.org, StarOffice and MS Office, today announced an agreement to provide OpenDocument and MS Office document collaboration, management and retention services for the forthcoming release of Xandros Server 2.0 - Standard Edition. O3Spaces Workplace provides any office user with a professional out-of-the-box extension for team and project collaboration, and meets the growing demands from governments and companies for an affordable, platform independent and integrated collaboration alternative to the Microsoft Office SharePoint server. Xandros will give a sneak preview of the new Xandros Server with O3Spaces OpenDocument and MS Office document collaboration in the Xandros stand at CeBIT in Hannover, Germany, March 15-21, 2007.

"The Xandros Server managed community with its workflow automation and graphical interface has opened up Linux server administration to broad new classes of mid-level enterprise departments and SMBs," said Dr. Rob Mentink, O3Spaces CEO. "We were especially impressed by how easy it was to integrate O3Spaces into the Xandros Server's community of managed services, making it easily accessible to server administrators with little or no Linux server experience. Together we provide enterprise class tools for collaborative projects while minimizing IT overhead."

"O3Spaces is leading the way to a future of OpenDocument adoption, and we are proud to be one of the first to market with a server that delivers a fully-integrated enterprise-grade collaboration solution for users of OpenOffice.org and other software supporting the approved international format," said Andreas Typaldos, Xandros CEO. "With support for both Microsoft Office and OpenDocument formats, O3Spaces fills an essential need for today's mixed network environments looking to transition from proprietary to open solutions. We were also impressed by how easy it is to configure and use the O3Spaces facility, making it an especially valuable addition to the Xandros Server Managed Community."
