CompuPic Beta for Linux; Open Source Software Released
Austin TX, July 1, 1999 - Providing a solution to the problem of consistent file and content management across all implementations on the Linux platform, Photodex Corporation today released the first public beta of its CompuPic Digital Content Manager for Linux. It also announced availability of the first of a range of open source shell utilities for the Linux community.
Already tried and tested on the Windows and Mac platforms and with hundreds of thousands of users worldwide, CompuPic Digital Content Manager will let Linux users visually access, manage and manipulate their graphics and media files. CompuPic provides a solid file management base for general use as well as specific graphics and media editing tools for imaging enthusiasts.
"Most users are afraid of command lines, which is one of the reasons Windows has been so successful," said Paul Schmidt, Photodex CEO. "We believe the next wave of software, including open source, will demonstrate that Linux can be as easy to use as Windows, perhaps easier! "
CompuPic for Linux is expected to be in final release early in Q4 of 1999, and will be free for non-business use. Business users will be able to purchase licenses direct from Photodex Corporation and from vendors bundling CompuPic with enterprise solutions packages. Users wishing to join the CompuPic public beta program for Linux or seeking information on Photodex open source software should go to www.linux.compupic.com.
