NEW SCO OPENSERVER DELIVERS WINDOWS CONNECTIVITY AND EASY-TO-USE INTERNET
SERVICES TO MILLIONS OF USERS

New Release Also Readies Developers with New Java Development Kit 

SANTA CRUZ, CA (May 6, 1997) - Continuing to supply its millions of
customers with products that support the Internet Way of Computing, SCO
(NASDAQ:SCOC), the world's leading supplier of UNIX server systems, today
unveiled SCO OpenServer Release 5.0.4, the latest release of the world's
most popular, commercial UNIX operating system for Intel platforms. 

Originally code-named "Comet," this new release features Microsoft
compatible file and print services from SCO OpenServer systems to Windows
PCs, a fully integrated Web server and set of authoring tools from Netscape
Communications Corporation, leading network connectivity technologies, and
a complete Java development environment.

The SCO OpenServer system is an industry-renown, robust application server,
running thousands of business-critical applications for thousands of
businesses around the world. Now businesses of all sizes can benefit from
the proven reliability and performance of the SCO OpenServer system to
easily deploy fully secure Web servers for delivering data and applications
to PCs and other devices on corporate intranets and extranets. With this
new release, developers can also write graphically rich, native Java
applications for the SCO OpenServer platform using SCO's Java Development
Kit v1.1 (JDK 1.1).

"SCO OpenServer remains one of the world's leading operating systems
running the day-to-day operations of businesses of all sizes," said Scott
McGregor, senior vice president, Products for SCO. "Businesses want a safe,
evolutionary path to quickly and seamlessly integrate their current
implementations with the new wave of Internet applications and
technologies. This new release of SCO OpenServer prepares them today for
the computing environment of the future."

File and Print, and More
The new release of SCO OpenServer includes SCO VisionFS, providing file and
print services from SCO servers to Windows PCs in small and large
enterprise environments. This added feature expands SCO's presence in the
file and print market, and extends their commitment to deliver seamless
integration between Windows clients and UNIX servers. SCO VisionFS also
allows users to access files transparently across the Internet from their
Web browser. Using the CIFS (Common Internet File System), users can browse
remote workgroups across the Internet as if they were local. SCO TermLite
has also been added to SCO OpenServer 5.0.4, allowing access to traditional
character based UNIX applications in a Windows environment.

This latest release also includes a series of integrated supplements and
updates with support for up to 4Gbytes of memory, 8Gbyte IDE hard drives,
and a number of new network, video and storage adapters.

Fully Optimized for Internet Computing
SCO first equipped its state-of-the-art UNIX Systems for Internet computing
in 1993, with the NCSA Web server and the Mosaic browser, adding to the
already resident TCP/IP networking capability that has long been a staple
of SCO UNIX Systems. With this new release, SCO has tightly integrated the
industry's leading Internet technologies with the base SCO OpenServer
system. New components include:
- Netscape FastTrack Server 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, video and audio support, and Web document creation and
publishing;
- SCO Internet Manager - allowing users to easily configure and manage
Internet and intranet servers; and
- SCO PPP from Morning Star - provides enhanced point-to-point protocol
(PPP), robust dial-up connectivity, and Internet security protection.

SCO OpenServer Internet FastStart System: Get on the Web with Ease!
SCO has also improved and renamed its popular SCO Internet FastStart
configuration. Now released as SCO OpenServer Internet FastStart System,
this new world-class Web server includes everything needed to quickly and
easily get an Internet or intranet server up and running. It is ideally
suited for ISP Web hosting, Web content providers, Internet commerce, and
intranet Web servers.

100% Java Development
In a related announcement today, SCO unveiled its plan to include its JDK
1.1 in every copy of SCO OpenServer Release 5.0.4. Complementing the C and
C++ compilers in the SCO OpenServer Development System, developers can now
create graphically rich, native Java applications for the SCO OpenServer
platform, and update existing applications with a Java interface, making
them universally available via a Web browser. 

Pricing and Availability
SCO OpenServer Release 5.0.4 is scheduled to ship at the end of this month,
and is priced as follows: the Enterprise System, which includes a 5-user
license for all components, is $1,395; the Internet FastStart System, which
includes a 1-user license for all components, is $895; the Desktop System,

* Now included with the SCO OpenServer Enterprise System and the SCO
OpenServer Internet FastStart System, SCO VisionFS provides basic shared
file and print services for connecting Microsoft Windows systems. SCO
VisionFS supports the native Microsoft network protocols, so no added
software is required on client systems.  Also now included on the Release
5.0.4 CD-ROM is SCO TermLite. SCO TermLite is a 16-bit terminal emulation
program which installs on Microsoft Windows systems and supports SCO ANSI
and VT320 over TCP/IP and NetBEUI networks.

9.  LICENSES

Both the SCO OpenServer Host System and the SCO OpenServer Enterprise
System come with a 5-user license. The SCO OpenServer Desktop System and
the SCO OpenServer Internet FastStart System come with a single-user
license. Additional user licenses for the SCO OpenServer Host System and
SCO OpenServer Enterprise System are available in 10-, 25-, 100-, 500-, and
unlimited-user increments.  SCO OpenServer User Licenses are cumulative and
can be added at any time. For example, a user requiring a 30-user SCO
OpenServer Enterprise System would purchase the base system with 5 users,
and then add a 25-user license. If system requirements grew, the user could
then purchase another 10-user license, for a total of 40 users.

The SCO OpenServer Internet FastStart System and the SCO OpenServer Desktop
System do not accept additional user licenses.  To add user licenses, the
installation must be upgraded to the SCO OpenServer Enterprise System.

The SCO OpenServer Release 5.0.4 Development System may be used by as many
users as are licensed for the operating system upon which it is installed.

To take advantage of multithreading found in the core operating system and
networking components, Symmetric Multiprocessing (SMP) license from SCO is
also available for all three server configurations.  Each SMP License from
SCO activates an additional CPU.

Every SCO OpenServer User License now includes an SCO VisionFS Client
License.  This means that a basic five-user SCO OpenServer Enterprise
System enables five SCO VisionFS client attachments, and  a one-user SCO
OpenServer Internet FastStart System one SCO VisionFS Client License.  Note
that since SCO VisionFS requires TCP/IP, this capability is not available
with SCO OpenServer Host System  licenses.  A one-user license for the SCO
Advanced File and Print Server is also included as part of every SCO
OpenServer Enterprise, SCO OpenServer Internet FastStart, and SCO
OpenServer Host system product.

10.  PRODUCTS ADDED AND UPDATED

The following layered products have been added to, or updated on the
standard SCO OpenServer CD-ROM distribution. Additional information about
these products is also included on the CD-ROM.

advanced capabilities, for installations where Windows NT-product-style
domain support, more complex wide area network integration, or NetBEUI
support is a requirement, the SCO Advanced File and Print Server provides
the best solution. 

* SCO Doctor Lite is a reduced function version of the SCO Doctor product
which provides an introduction to the full network-capable SCO Doctor
