ICS TO PROVIDE TECHNOLOGY ON NEW VERSION OF OSF/MOTIF

 CAMBRIDGE, Mass. Feb. 8, /PRNewswire/ -- ICS, the leader in Motif software development tools, today announced it has been contracted by the Open Software Foundation to play a key role in developing the new version of the OSF/Motif software.
 ICS will work with OSF on the design, specification, implementation, and testing of the Workspace Manager technology in Motif. The Workspace Manager lets users make better use of the desktop, enabling them to group windows that work together into separate individual workspaces. ICS will provide additional Motif Toolkit enhancements, such as flexible color use, toggle button changes to improve visuals, and capabilities to increase the convergence of Motif with PC styles.
 "We contracted with ICS for the next version of OSF/Motif because of their extensive expertise in working with the Motif technology" said Cathy Betz, business area manager for Motif.
 "As the leading Motif software development company and one of the first to bring a Motif product to market, we understand the Motif installed base and the features and enhancements customers need," said Peter Winston, president and founder of ICS. "Our track record with the Motif community makes us a natural choice."
 Integrated Computer Solutions (ICS), provides products and services that help developers working with OSF/Motif to become more productive. Founded in 1987, ICS was the first company to offer training and products based on the X Window System and to supply OSF/Motif to developers working on Sun workstations. In addition, ICS is the founder and sponsor of Xhibition, a technical conference and trade show that plays a major role in driving the rapid acceptance of the X Window System and other mission-critical technologies. ICS is affiliated with a number of major industry groups, including the MIT X Consortium, Open Software Foundation, POSC (the Petrotechnical Open Software Corporation), and a corporate sponsor of the X User Group.
