Viyya Explains the Xandros NetBook Relationship

Details of the EeePC Initiative

FAIRFIELD, NJ--(Marketwire - May 6, 2008) - Viyya Technologies, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: VYON), the developer and marketer of the world's most advanced, web-based internet content management application, announced planning for the delivery phase of its agreement with Xandros, in the EeePC NetBook market.

In the heat of management's preparation of last week's press release announcing the landmark Viyya/Xandros agreement, it was realized that there was not enough detail or clarification of the overall plan, nor a simplified explanation of the process involved. The following is management's overview.

Xandros Inc., headquartered in New York City, is one of the world's premier providers of Linux based solutions. It has executed joint marketing agreements with Microsoft recently, but more important for Viyya is Xandros' relationship with ASUS in Taiwan. ASUS is the world's largest provider of computer motherboards and has recently announced its immediately successful EeePC product line.

Xandros will provide the operating system and Linux product suite for ASUS worldwide with VIYYA embedded in the Xandros suite on the ASUS product. This will enable end users to immediately utilize VIYYA as their content aggregation tool.

The EeePC designed and marketed by ASUS, is a 7", .92kg miniaturized wireless notebook computer (NetBook) that appears to have revolutionized the "laptop" world. The EeePC was voted the "Product of the Year" in February at CeBIT in Germany and has won over 616 awards in 2008. The first 10,000 shipped to the U.S. were sold out immediately and independent analysts predict over 50 million units to be in circulation by 2011.

The product will replace laptops and most other PDA devices in the mobile environment providing users with instant access to content "on-the-go." VIYYA is viewed as the best available content aggregation software with its capabilities for extracting, filtering, distributing, and archiving information from the internet and any digital source. VIYYA's automated and user selective information sourcing continues unmatched for the gathering and distribution of business intelligence in today's collaborative web 2.5 environment.

Viyya's revenue model continues to be a means of recurring revenue for all involved partners. Viyya is projecting this transaction to represent millions of dollars in annual revenue over the next three years based on the projected EeePC sales to a conservative estimate of buyers and users.

John Bay, Viyya CEO and president, said, "This is a tremendous opportunity for Viyya to be at the forefront in the NetBook revolution with Xandros. The power of this relationship gives Viyya worldwide exposure, worldwide revenue capabilities with world class distribution, and carrier partners. What more could you ask for?"
