CLARIS SHIPS CLARISWORKS FOR WINDOWS

 SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Claris Corporation today announced that ClarisWorks for Windows, the revolutionary new integrated software for Windows, is shipping and now available at authorized Claris resellers in the United States.
 ClarisWorks for Windows is being offered at a special introductory suggested promotional price of $99. After August 15 it will be offered at $249 suggested retail price.
 ClarisWorks for Windows features a breakthrough in interface design that offers users a more natural way of computing. While other integrated products bolt together separate mini-applications, ClarisWorks for Windows seamlessly integrates robust word processing, graphics, spreadsheet, charting and database environments.
 Seamless integration sets standard for integrated software
 "If you want to look at what the future holds, look no further than the forthcoming ClarisWorks for Windows, which...feels more like an integrated desktop than a collection of stand-alone applications," according to P.C. Letter.
 Beta users also praised the superior integration. "It's exciting to be able to put together different components without leaving the page," says Lois Schneider, president of Schneider Management Associates, a management consulting firm. "I like creating tables to enhance my text. Before ClarisWorks, I relied on multiple software programs to make this possible. With ClarisWorks, I'm able to easily include a spreadsheet table right in the middle of a letter.
 "All I do is click on the tool palette -- the menu bar just changes automatically -- and continue working on my document. This seamless integration will prove to be a real timesaver. I never considered using an integrated package before ClarisWorks for Windows came along. Now, I'm hooked."
 "ClarisWorks for Windows is going to stun a lot of people in the Windows world," says Rob Russell of SumWare Consulting in Aukland, New Zealand. "It moves away from the `module' concept of Microsoft Works, which is by comparison clunky and slow."
 Kim Hunter, owner of Acropolis Software, says, "ClarisWorks is like a breath of fresh air for Windows users. It was clearly written with the idea of everything working together. On the Windows side, there's nothing like it. Other packages that call themselves integrated are really four or five separate packages that are glued together."
 "Microsoft Works hasn't met most users' needs. It's not well integrated, it's very limiting, and it's definitely not intuitive," says Seamus Berkeley of Berkeley Consulting. "ClarisWorks, on the other hand, is well-designed and


extremely well integrated. It will set new standards in integration software."
 Elegant design will "blow Windows users away," say beta users
 ClarisWorks for Windows features a superior graphical user interface (GUI) that is unique among integrated packages. True WYSIWYG capabilities make it extremely easy for users to become productive immediately. For example, no special print preview modes are needed to see headers, footers and footnotes. Other advanced GUI features include zoom capabilities from 3 to 3,200 percent, multiple views, tear-off palettes and simultaneous database browse/layout views.
 "Windows users are going to be blown away by the WYSIWYG capabilities of ClarisWorks. It will raise expectations in the Windows arena," said Jeff Gagne, director of corporate information systems for Fine Arts Engraving, an engraving house serving Fortune 500 companies. Hunter adds, "I especially like the tear-off palettes -- I save a lot of time by not having to go back to the menu all the time."
 The right features for the job
 ClarisWorks delivers a breadth of robust features that are designed to meet the needs of a wide variety of users including first-time PC owners, home office and small to medium-sized businesses, laptop users, students and educators.
 Easy to share
 With ClarisWorks' extensive array of file translators, users can open, insert, save and edit files from a wide range of applications -- including Microsoft Word, WordPerfect, Excel, Lotus 1-2-3 and dBase -- across multiple platforms.
 ClarisWorks for Windows is the second internally-developed Windows product from Claris, following the award-winning FileMaker Pro.
 Claris Corporation, a leading worldwide vendor of Windows and Macintosh applications for business, education and home, is a subsidiary of Apple Computer, Inc. (NASDAQ-NMS: AAPL) with headquarters in Santa Clara, Calif.
