                         PRODUCT ANNOUNCEMENT
May 20, 1992 ... The Santa Cruz Operation, Inc. (SCO) is now accepting
orders for  Release 2.0 of the SCO Open Desktop Development System for
386 and  486 computers  based on Industry Standard Architecture (ISA),
Extended Industry  Standard  Architecture  (EISA),  or  Micro  Channel
Architecture (MCA).  Upgrades for  users of earlier versions will also
be available. Product and availability information follow:
PRODUCT NAME:  SCO Open Desktop Development System
DESCRIPTION: The  SCO Open  Desktop Development System is a supplement
  to the  SCO Open  Desktop Personal  System  or  Server  System  that
  provides  the   ideal  foundation   for   a   software   development
  environment. It includes a rich set of industry-standard Application
  Programming Interfaces  (APIs), programming toolkits, libraries, and
  utilities  to   help  produce   networked,  graphical   UNIX  System
  applications for distributed computing environments.
  Because  the  SCO  Open  Desktop  Development  System  is  based  on
  industry, government,  and  de  facto  open  systems  standards,  it
  protects  investments   in   software,   hardware,   training,   and
  development. As  a result, applications can be created that run on a
  wide range of systems, are portable to a wide range of environments,
  interoperate  in  heterogeneous  networks,  and  are  scalable  from
  desktop to data center.
  Release 2.0  of the  SCO  Open  Desktop  Development  System  is  an
  enhanced  version  of  the  SCO  Open  Desktop  Development  System.
  Specific enhancements  have been  made to  the core  SCO UNIX System
  development environment,  bringing the  system to  the  Version  4.0
  level of  the SCO  UNIX  Development  System,  as  well  as  to  the
  networking  interfaces   and  programming   utilities.  Release  2.0
  includes shared  libraries for  both X11R4  and OSF/Motif 1.1, and a
  new graphical  debugger, dbXtra,  for improving  C and  C++  program
  development productivity.  The SCO  Open Desktop  Development System
  documentation has  also been  improved by including more examples to
  facilitate applications development.
PRICING: Contact your SCO supplier.

  designed to  take users  of previous  SCO Open  Desktop  Development
  System releases  to the  Release 2.0 level. Each Upgrade consists of
  complete media  distribution  and  documentation.  The  Release  2.0
  Upgrade performs  an intelligent,  in-place upgrade  on Release  1.1
  systems, or  may be  used to perform full re-installation of Release
  1.0 systems.  Users may  upgrade  their  diskette-based  systems  to
  cartridge-tape or  CD-ROM  distribution  at  the  indicated  prices.
  Cartridge-tape distribution  requires a  3.5" 135tpi  or 5.25" 96tpi
  floppy disk  drive plus  QIC-02 or  SCSI tape  controller and  drive
  capable of  handling 60-Mbyte  QIC-24 tape  format. To  install  the
  Upgrade, customers  must use  their  previous  Activation  Keys  and
  Serial Numbers.
  Standalone  documentation sets,  as well  as  upgrades  to  take
  existing UNIX  System V  or SCO XENIX System V users to the SCO Open
  Desktop Development System, will also be made available.

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State

business. See SCO v IBM.
