STONEWARE, INC. Announces LiveCD for webOS (Virtualized Web Desktop™) Based on Ubuntu 8.04

INDIANAPOLIS, IN--(Marketwire - April 16, 2008) - Stoneware, Inc. today announced LiveCD for webOS in their next release of webNetwork due in May of 2008. The release of LiveCD for webOS will allow organizations to optionally turn their existing desktop hardware into a webOS thin client using a bootable CD, DVD, or USB drive based on Ubuntu's Linux distribution. Workstations booting from the LiveCD for webOS will load a read-only image of Ubuntu's Linux. The Linux image will establish network connectivity and load the user's Virtual Web Desktop™ in the workstation's browser. Enterprise users will be capable of accessing all of their web, Windows, and hosted applications through the thin client workstation.

"As the enterprise begins its move from client/server to 'Cloud' or 'Grid' computing, the role and requirements of the desktop will change as well," states Rick German, CEO of Stoneware, Inc. "Leveraging Ubuntu as the underlying Linux distribution, LiveCD for webOS will allow enterprises to deploy webOS in a variety of different thin client capacities throughout the organization, such as kiosks, lab workstations, and terminals. Organizations will have the freedom and flexibility to extend the life of workstation hardware that is unable to be upgraded to the latest operating system release or needs simplified management."

Stoneware webOS is the next evolution in web desktop virtualization. To learn more about Stoneware's webOS, please visit or contact us at 888.473.9485.
