>Dear Shake Customer,
>Recent announcements from Red Hat have caused some concern for us all.
>After speaking with many of you, we have found that, for the most part,
>our customers and other vendors are not interested in migrating to a
>Linux solution from Red Hat. Therefore, our course of action at this
>to migrate to Red Hat 9 since this is the predecessor for both Red Hat
>Enterprise and the Fedora project. The next release of Shake will have
>Hat 9 as the required Linux operating system.
>We hope this information will assist you in your facility planning. For
>those interested in switching to the Mac platform, there is a Shake
>2-for-1 license trade-in offer in effect until April 1st, 2004.
>If you have questions about purchasing licenses or changing platforms,
>please contact a Professional Film Reseller. Visit
