SCO CONTINUES INTERNET BLITZ, SHIPS NEW SCO UNIXWARE FULLY OPTIMIZED FOR
INTERNET COMPUTING

New SCO UnixWare Allows Customers to Immediately Take Advantage 
of the Internet Way of Computing

SANTA CRUZ, CA (April 7, 1997) - Continuing to evolve its product offerings
for the Internet Way of Computing, SCO (NASDAQ:SCOC) today announced the
immediate availability of SCO UnixWare Release 2.1.2, the newest release of
the performance-leading, enterprise-class operating system for Intel
platforms, optimized for Internet computing. Featured in this new release
are a fully integrated Web server and authoring tools from Netscape
Communications Corporation, as well as network connectivity technologies,
and backup and restore services.
 
SCO UnixWare 2.1.2 delivers on SCO's commitment to the Internet Way of
Computing with enhanced Internet components designed to allow medium to
large businesses to easily take advantage of the Internet and corporate
intranet environments. Standard components now fully integrated with the SCO
UnixWare server platform are moving forward are: 
-  Netscape FastTrack Server 2.0 Software - Netscape's award-winning Web
server with SSL 3.0 security standard, ideal for creating and managing
Internet/intranet sites;
-  Netscape Navigator Gold 3.0 - client software with integrated Web
navigation, email, support for video and audio, and Web document creation; 
-  SCO PPP from Morning Star - provides enhanced point-to-point protocol
(PPP) and Internet security protection for businesses using the Internet. 

"Bringing these best-of-breed Internet and intranet services into our
baseline product is fundamental to delivering on our Internet Way of
Computing strategy," said Scott McGregor, SCO's senior vice president,
Products. "Today's announcement marks a major development along our product
cycle by providing the power of SCO UnixWare with easy-to-use, industry
proven Web and Internet technologies. Our customers in the enterprise space
can now accelerate their adoption of Internet and intranet applications and
take full advantage of the Internet Way of Computing." 

In addition to the new Internet capabilities, the SCO UnixWare platform now
includes SCO ARCserve/Open Lite, providing high data reliability and
powerful backup and restore functionality for a single server system. This
feature is valuable in reducing downtime to Web servers and
business-critical environments of all kinds. 

"We are pleased with the announcement of SCO UnixWare 2.1.2 and its fully
Internet optimized OS package," said Masahiro Inoue, president and managing
director of Yahoo KK. "Yahoo KK had searched and evaluated which operating
system platform was the best choice for running our service on Compaq
Proliant PCs. SCO UnixWare was the fastest, highest quality platform, and
delivered excellent SMP scalability. Since April of last year, SCO's
powerful and robust operating system, SCO UnixWare, has been the basis for
our Yahoo! Japan site, providing users with a non-stop and highly responsive
WWW search engine in a full Japanese environment."

In a related announcement today, SCO announced plans to release
high-availability clustering products for the SCO UnixWare platform this
quarter. These clustering products provide customers with a higher degree of
fault-tolerant solutions for business critical environments, including Web
Servers, Commerce Servers, and Departmental Application and Database Servers.

Internet/intranet environment with other recently announced components from
the SCO Internet Family. Products also available include the Netscape
Enterprise Server 2.0, Netscape Proxy Server 2.5, Netscape LiveWire, and the
SCO Internet to NetWare Gateway for easily connecting systems on NetWare
LANs to the Internet.
