Company Information

A subsidiary of CP Software Group, Island Software provides the most comprehensive suite of word processing, desktop publishing, presentation graphics and spreadsheet software for Unix today.

SunWorld Magazine reviewed Island’s flagship product, Island Write, Draw & Paint, and stated, “We were impressed. It is well suited for the engineer or manager who wants to whip out a document and doesn’t have time to wrestle a difficult word processor. It is the closest thing to a Macintosh word processor for Unix.”

Best known for its award winning products—Island Write, Draw & Paint, IslandPresents, IslandCalc, and IslandOffice; Island Software has set the standard for ease-of-use, modularity, and functionality in the Unix market. Island’s desktop productivity tools run on most popular Unix platforms including Sun, Hewlett-Packard, and IBM.

Island Graphics Corporation is a long-time software provider to the Unix market. Island Graphics was founded in 1983 with the mission of becoming a leading developer of graphic arts and office productivity software. Island Graphics had evolved by 1988 into two independent divisions: the Graphic Arts Division and the Office Products Division. The Office Products Division was acquired by CP Software Group in September of 1993 and became Island Software Corporation.
