          SCO UNVEILS ENTERPRISE CLASS OPERATING SYSTEM
                                
            Release of SCO UnixWare 2.1 Paves Way for
                   Next-Generation UNIX Systems
 
 
SANTA  CRUZ, CA (February 12, 1996) -- In a strategic  move  that
marks  the first step toward the consolidation of a single, high-
volume  UNIX  System,  SCO  (NASDAQ: SCOC)  today  announced  the
release of SCO UnixWare 2.1, the computing world's first industry-
standard,  enterprise-class server operating system for  advanced
Intel  platforms. The availability of SCO UnixWare 2.1 paves  the
way toward the next-generation 64-bit UNIX system technology, and
signals SCO's drive into the enterprise market.
 
"We  are  targeting  SCO  UnixWare as a solution  for  enterprise
computing  environments -- enterprise departmental  servers,  and
the  data  center,"  said  Alok Mohan, SCO  president  and  chief
operating  officer. "It's SCO's goal to bring the same  economies
of  scale  and  value to the enterprise that we've been  steadily
delivering  for the past 15 years. SCO is committed to  extending
its  presence in the enterprise market, and SCO UnixWare  2.1  is
the right product to accomplish this."
 
SCO UnixWare 2.1 provides businesses with a highly reliable, cost-
effective, networked UNIX operating system platform with a strong
migration  path  to  64-bit  UNIX  Systems.  SCO's  powerful  new
operating  system  features a wide range  of  enterprise-enabling
technologies,   including   enterprise-level   performance    and
scalability, high-speed networking and interoperation with TCP/IP
and  NetWare  networks,  dynamic storage  management  using  RAID
features,   and   support  for  high-end,  Intel  processor-based
hardware server platforms.
 
"It's our plan to work with the industry leading OEMs and ISVs to
make  UnixWare an industry standard enterprise operating system,"
said Mike Shelton, SCO vice president, enterprise solutions.  "We
foresee  establishing  relationships with  OEMs  who  will  adopt
UnixWare   as  their  core  enterprise  OS  and  add   additional
enterprise  functionality to meet their customer's  requirements.
We   are  actively  pursuing  developers  for  re-licensing   OEM
technologies for incorporation into the core UnixWare offering."
 
Richard  French,  Oracle's vice president,  Intel  UNIX  Products
Division,  said,  "Oracle endorses SCO's  product  direction  and
eagerly  awaits the technical enhancements that SCO is making  to
their   operating   systems.  Already,  Oracle   and   SCO   have
demonstrated  remarkable  performance  in  fully  audited   TPC-C
benchmarks, providing the best industry price performance as well
as  the  best performance ever on any system below $1 million  at
3849 tmpC ($161/tmpC)."
 
With SCO UnixWare 2.1, customers can now deploy a single, highly-
scalable  server that functions both as a UNIX System application
server  as  well  as a networking platform that incorporates  the
most  popular  LAN protocols, including new support  for  NetWare
Services.
 
OEMs and ISVs
Key  enterprise OEMs -- including Intel, Unisys,  ICL,  NCR,  and
Sequent  -- have strongly endorsed SCO UnixWare 2.1 as a platform
for enterprise solutions.
 
Key  ISVs  --  including Oracle, Informix and CA -- endorsed  SCO
UnixWare  2.1  as  an  enterprise  platform  for  their   product
offerings and are actively planning and delivering products tuned
for the new system.
 
Product Roadmap
SCO UnixWare. 2.1 delivers on SCO's commitment to the future. SCO
UnixWare  2.1 is the first step toward the consolidation  of  SCO
OpenServer and UnixWare systems into a high volume UNIX operating
system  code-named  Gemini, and the next-generation  64-bit  UNIX
system  announced  jointly by SCO and HP.  Prior  to  the  Gemini
release, both SCO OpenServer and SCO UnixWare product lines  will
continue  to  be  individually supported and  enhanced.  SCO  has
scheduled  a  software compatibility toolkit, called  the  Gemini
Software  Development  Kit,  for the  summer  of  1996,  enabling
developers  to  begin  developing their applications  to  run  on
Gemini  in  1997.  A full 64-bit UNIX implementation is  expected
for release in 1998.

       SCO TO STRENGTHEN PRESENCE IN ENTERPRISE MARKET
                              
        Release of UnixWare 2.1 Positions Company for
      Expanded Market Share and Business Opportunities
                              
SANTA  CRUZ, CA (February 12, 1996) -- Positioning  itself  to
further  expand into the enterprise market, SCO  (NASDAQ:SCOC)
today  announced  the  release of its enterprise-class  server
operating  system,  SCO UnixWare 2.1. While  SCO  is  still  a
leader  in  business critical solutions for  small  to  medium
sized  businesses, SCO UnixWare 2.1 represents  the  company's
first true product for the enterprise market.
 
"The  enterprise space currently represents a relatively small
portion of our business," said Alok Mohan, SCO's president and
chief  executive officer. "However, with the  release  of  SCO
UnixWare   2.1,  we  are  moving  aggressively   toward,   and
dedicating  resources to, capturing market share and  building
our  business  in  the  enterprise arena.  By  leveraging  and
extending  our key OEM and ISV relationships, we aim  to  make
UnixWare  the  industry  standard operating  system  for  this
market."

   providing high-performance synchronization, scheduling and user-
   level threads facilities - included are routines to create threads,
   terminate threads, wait for threads, and adjust threads' scheduling
   characteristics
 
 - Thread safe libraries: the libraries libc, libm and libnsl have
   been made thread-safe to support multithreaded applications,
   ensuring that parallel threads which call the same library function
   will not interfere with each other
 
 - X Server Graphics Development Package: provides basic library and
   header file support for programming in the X11R5 environment,
   including the font server, X server, Xlib and X intrinsics - clients
   and utilities used to support UnixWare X Server development are
   also included
 
 - Desktop Manager Development Package: provides the desktop manager
   API support, including the drag-and-drop and help APIs, and provides
   a variety of graphics libraries and tools to support the graphics
   capabilities in UnixWare
 
 - Motif Development Package: provides a Motif toolkit, based on OSF
   Motif 1.2.3, providing the tools necessary to develop applications
   using Motif
 
 - Network Development Package: provides the header files and
   libraries for writing networking programs which use XTI/TLI, RPC,
   sockets, network selection facility, and name-to-addressing APIs
 
 - NetWare Development Package: provides development header files and
   libraries for writing and debugging network management, IPX/SPX and
   NetWare-aware client applications
 
APPLICATION DEBUGGER:  The SCO UnixWare 2.1 Software Development Kit
 includes a graphical windowing debugger for source-level application
 debugging that supports multi-threaded applications and LWPs. The
 graphical debugger can track multiple threads and processes
 executing on independent processors simultaneously. The user is
 given complete control over the execution of the program and the
 examination of its state. The debug program provides both a command
 line interface and an X Windows-based graphical user interface.
 
 The graphical debugger has the capability of configuring the user
 interface to meet the developer's current needs. The look and layout
 of the debugger windows in the graphical environment is highly-
 customizable, allowing developers to zero-in on problems more
 quickly and easily.
 
KERNEL DEBUGGER:  A threads-aware multiprocessing kernel debugger is
 provided to assist in the porting and debugging of kernel modules
 and drivers by allowing developers to examine and control a running
 kernel. This benefits system developers by reducing the development
 time needed to incorporate new modules into the system.
 
PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT TOOLS:  A new profiling tool, fprof, is
 provided to support flow and time profiling. Flow tracing is a form
 of tracing used to analyze performance and locality of reference of
 text. The information produced by this profiling tool can be used
 for performance analysis or locality of reference tuning. The lprof
 tool is another profiling tool which displays line-by-line execution
 count profile data for a source file. In addition, the basic prof
 profiling tools now support C++ and dynamic shared libraries.
 
 A set of Metric Access Support (MAS) functions are provided to allow
 applications to advertise and gather performance metrics. The raw
 metric data can be analyzed to determine how best to improve the
 performance of a specific application, or even of the operating
 system.
 
IHV DEVELOPMENT KIT:  A Hardware Peripheral Device Development Kit,
 packaged as part of the SDK, provides the tools, documentation,
 instructions and sample code required to write device drivers for
 new hardware devices. The kit contains an extended set of sample
 software code and development tools to assist IHV developers when
 creating/updating SCO UnixWare device drivers. The kit contains:
 
 - Sample drivers for video screens
 
 - Screen Interface (SI) modules, Host Bus Adapter (HBA) drivers, and
   networking drivers, in both uni-processor and multiprocessor
   versions
 
 - Documentation containing details about each of the included drivers
   and other related technical information
 
 - An HBA and LAN pre-certification kit which facilitates testing the
   integrity of the HBA and network driver floppies used to install
   HBA and LAN driver packages
 
 - DDI conformance tool: a utility that can be used to ensure that the
   driver complies with DDI/DKI interface standards
 
 - Packaging utilities and source code for creating driver
   installation floppy disks
   
 Device driver developers can also use the auto-configuration
 mechanism provided with the SCO UnixWare 2.1 kernel. This allows 
 device drivers to take advantage of the automatic detection and
 configuration capabilities available in some HBAs and devices. Auto-
 detection enables the device driver to see whether the device it is
 to control actually exists on the system.
