WIND RIVER PLATFORMS Illustrate Technology Prowess and Innovation

Alameda, CA--April 9, 2003--Wind River Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:WIND), the worldwide market leader in embedded software and services, today announced that its market-specific integrated embedded platforms - WIND RIVER PLATFORMS - won "Best Product of Show" at RTS Embedded Systems in Paris. Beating out products from LynuxWorks, MontaVista, OSE and Rational Software, WIND RIVER PLATFORMS were selected as the best product by show exhibitors, speakers and attendees - a group that included both embedded developers and technical decision makers.

Attendees cast their vote for Wind River's commercial off the shelf real-time integrated embedded platforms, demonstrating the embedded market's commitment to commercial products rather than "open" operating system products.

"This award is excellent recognition of Wind River's commitment to build and deliver the best and most innovative technology and solutions in the embedded industry."
