MONROVIA, CA - September 10, 2002 - Parasoft, leading provider of Automated
Error Prevention software, and Terra Soft Solutions, Inc., the leading
developer of integrated PowerPC Linux solutions, announced today a new
channel partnership in which Terra Soft will co-market and resell Parasoft
Insure++, an automated runtime error detection tool for C/C++, exclusively
for Yellow Dog Linux (YDL) on PowerPC.
As the only tool of its kind available for Linux, Insure++ plays an important
role in helping businesses to improve software quality, speed time-to-market
and reduce development-related costs. Insure++ is an automatic run-time
application-testing tool that detects elusive defects such as memory
corruption, memory leaks, memory allocation errors, variable initialization

for Insure++ to support PowerPC, we were happy to make that happen," said
Parasoft CEO Adam Kolawa. "With Terra Soft's established customer base for
Yellow Dog Linux on PowerPC, it was the perfect opportunity for us to partner
and make Insure++ available to their customers."
Yellow Dog Linux is a complete, RPM-based operating system for PowerPC
computers. YDL may co-exist with Mac OS or run stand-alone. YDL offers a
simple to use graphical installer, KDE and Gnome, and over 1,000 packages to
fulfill home/office, server, development, and HPC cluster applications. YDL
supports Apple computers as old as the 7200 or as new as the Xserve.
"As YDL has matured and its user base grown, we have received requests for
more advanced, professional development tools," said Kai Staats, Terra Soft
CEO. "To assist with code development for PowerPC clusters, the addition of
Parasoft Insure++ to the YDL family of supported products is well received,
well timed, and highly valuable."
Availability Insure++ for Yellow Dog Linux on PowerPC is currently available
from Terra Soft. Pricing for a single copy is $2,995 (US). Copies can be
