Some short-term weakness in Bluepoint is a real buying opportunity. I think we will see the company make it clear through deals they have in the works that they are a leader. Those who are patient will do well.

Agreed. I think the biggest problem here is that online brokers still don't allow you to buy it unless you call it in to a live broker.

Once that changes, the price will rebound nicely. JMO.

PS If anyone CAN get it through an online broker, please PM me with the brokerage. My DLJdirect won't allow it.

Nice comeback near end of day. Thanks to all who sent me PM's regarding "online" success in trading BLPT.

The winners apparently are Etrade and NDB.

I talked to my brokerage yesterday about getting the quotes for blpt on DLJdirect. He said he put in a request. We'll see if that's successful. For now he said I'd have to call the orders for now.

Nice comeback late in the day to $14.

Good Trading!

Great Wall Tech (0074.hk) has been on fire recently, despite the political uncertainty in Taiwan. finance.yahoo.com
Afterall the Hong Kong market has been way up, after the Prez election in Taiwan.

Since Bluepoint is installing its Linux in Great Wall PCs, it could catch the fire as well.

I think we will see good things from Bluepoint as the relationships it is developing now, and the business turf they have claimed, mature.

As is stated on bluepoint's web site, the two main markets the company is focusing on are computer users and the embedded market.

Perhaps we will see deals with major hardware or chip manufacturers in the Chinese market down the road.

A- The short-term market of the BluePoint Linux product depends on the number of the Chinese Linux users, mostly computer professionals and enthusiasts.
B- Embedded Linux Market - Mobile phone sales figures are much higher than that of PCs and the embedded equipment market is 10 times larger than the PC market.

The future of Bluepoint looks very bright over the mid and long haul.

Intel and Bluepoint to Establish Linux Technical Support Center in China


LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 26, 2000--Bluepoint Linux Software Corp. (OTCBB:BLPT) announced today that the company will join forces with Intel (Nasdaq:INTC) to establish a Linux Technical Support Center in China.

According to Yu Deng, President of Bluepoint, Intel will contribute technology and equipment, and Bluepoint will deliver the management and staffing and operate the center.

The center, located in Shenzhen, is comprised of the following units: Proof of Concept (POC), Online Support, Training and Call center. The center will deliver services to integration providers, Linux solution providers and end users. From the POC center, staff experts will evaluate client business requirements and objectively recommend the most suitable software solution.

Bluepoint's Online Support Center utilizes Knowledge Base and Virtual Community to provide online technical support. Visitors can quickly and conveniently find technical information in the Knowledge Base and can get online, real time support from Linux experts.

Mr. Yu Deng, the President of Bluepoint, said: "The lack of reliable technical support and the lack of high quality Linux solutions that meet the need of the Chinese market have been a bottle-neck in the Linux development in China. Bluepoint founders have been paying close attention to the technical support problem. In 1998, Bluepoint founders established the first Linux/Unix support site in China: www.openunix.org. We are confident that, with the support from Intel, the Bluepoint's Linux Technical Support will help to push the Linux development in China to new levels."

Bluepoint Linux Software is the developer of the first "true Chinese" Linux operating system, named Bluepoint. Bluepoint controls approximately 80 percent of the Chinese Linux bundling market and is preinstalled by several major computer manufacturers in China, including Great Wall, TCL and Xiahua Shanbao (TriGem).

The company is a leading provider of Linux solutions and related services in the Chinese market. The company also develops Linux-based embedded systems.

Forward-looking statements in this release are made pursuant to the safe-harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Investors are cautioned that such forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties, including, without limitation, continued acceptance of the company's products and technological changes, the company's dependence upon third-party suppliers, intellectual-property rights and other risks detailed from time to time in the company's periodic reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Anybody still here? House of Representatives will vote on PNTR tomorrow, the 24th. Could trigger an upside move. Any thoughts?
