Ready-to-Run Software Enables FrontPage for Linux on IBM eServer zSeries

General Availability Announced Following Testing at Telia and British Telecom

Chelmsford, MA. – June 6, 2002 -- Ready-to-Run Software (RTR) today has announced the general availability of the Microsoft® FrontPage™ Server Extensions completed under an agreement with IBM for SuSE® Linux® on zSeries. IBM, a global leader in information technology, required support for the widely distributed web-publishing tool in order to complete the product offering for the robust zSeries mainframe as part of its continuing Linux initiatives.

Ready-to-Run Software, under a separate contract with Microsoft Corp., provides ongoing engineering, maintenance and related support services for the Microsoft FrontPage Server Extensions within non-Windows configurations. Prior to general release, RTR worked through beta testing with two European giants who have made the leap to Linux running on the IBM zSeries platform. British Telecom, one of the world’s largest telecommunication providers, and Telia AB, Scandinavia’s largest telecommunications and internet service provider and the first European company to deploy a commercial system based on Linux, were the participants in the successful beta program with RTR.

"Due to our background with both FrontPage and with deployment of applications across multiple platforms, RTR could readily support IBM in providing this component of their Linux initiative. This effort is indicative of how our skills and tools can play a role in making hardware and application vendors successful," said Jeff Moskow, CEO at RTR. "RTR will now make the server extensions generally available for all zSeries customers." Contact RTR directly for more information or visit the company website ( for download instructions.
