SCO AND IBM FORM BROAD STRATEGIC ALLIANCE

SCO's UnixWare 7 Becomes Key Member of IBM's New UNIX Product Line; ISVs
and Customers to Benefit from Single Industry-Standard UNIX Platform that
Spans Entire Enterprise Environment

Santa Cruz, CA (October 26, 1998) - SCO (NASDAQ:SCOC) today announced that
it has entered into a strategic business agreement with IBM (NYSE:IBM). SCO
and IBM, in collaboration with Intel and other key partners, will
aggressively accelerate worldwide growth of Intel processor-based UNIX
servers for the enterprise, and will deliver a single UNIX product line for
today's Intel IA-32 systems and future IA-64 systems. The result will be a
single product line that will run on IA-32, IA-64 and IBM microprocessor
systems that range from entry-level servers to large enterprise environments.

Under the new agreement, IBM will make SCO's UnixWare 7 its 32-bit UNIX
operating system for the high-volume Intel-architecture enterprise market.
IBM will apply substantial resources to promote and sell the UnixWare 7
operating system worldwide, and will offer it as a member of its new UNIX
product line.

In addition, IBM will contribute AIX technology to SCO's UnixWare to
enhance its scalability and enterprise capability. This will complement the
data-center engineering collaboration by SCO's OEM partners (Compaq, Data
General, ICL and Unisys) to integrate extensive data-center capabilities
into the UnixWare platform. IBM is also allocating engineering resources to
ensure the availability of IBM and AIX middleware on the UnixWare platform.

Over time, SCO and IBM will increase compatibility between UnixWare and
AIX, providing ISVs a single platform to port to for UNIX systems on Intel
and Power processors, while giving enterprise users greater choice and
opportunity in utilizing key applications.

Furthermore, SCO and IBM's 64-bit development teams are collaborating to
develop a 64-bit UNIX operating system. The companies are working closely
with ISVs to make it the industry-standard UNIX system on IA-64. SCO will
handle general channel distribution for the jointly developed product.

"We are extremely pleased that IBM is making this strong commitment to SCO,
and has taken action to immediately begin selling and supporting UnixWare 7
through its worldwide sales force," said Doug Michels, president and CEO,
SCO. "And since applications are the key to the success of both a platform
and its users, SCO is especially excited to be working with IBM and Intel
to make it easy and attractive for ISVs to create software for a single
target UNIX System environment that covers the entire range of enterprise
computing."

"IBM's AIX enterprise technology when combined with UnixWare's technology
and SCO's market share leadership will create the high-volume platform for
Intel-based servers," said Dr. John E. Kelly III, vice president of Server
Development at IBM. "With Intel's support, this platform will become the
leading UNIX operating system for Intel-architecture based servers."

IBM joins other leading OEMs committed to selling UnixWare 7 into
enterprise environments of all kinds. IBM will apply significant sales and
marketing resources to drive UnixWare 7 volume in the enterprise.

In addition,  IBM and Intel will drive a substantial ISV recruitment
program designed not only to increase the number of applications available
for UnixWare 7, but to also make UnixWare 7 a top tier port with all key
ISVs. IBM will begin immediately by moving a broad range of IBM and AIX
middleware to UnixWare 7.

"Intel strongly supports this product line as the leading UNIX for IA-32
and IA-64," said John Miner, corporate vice president and general manager,
Enterprise Servers Group, Intel Corporation. "Intel is working with IBM and
SCO to make this the first UNIX port and volume leader with all ISVs."

SCO DELIVERS ON "PROJECT MONTEREY" 
IN COMPUTER TELEPHONY 

Teams With IBM, Dialogic and Tech Data to Provide Channel-Ready CT
Solutions for SMB Resellers and Platform for Telephony ISVs

SANTA CRUZ, CA (December 2, 1998) - SCO (NASDAQ:SCOC) announced today that
just four weeks after IBM unveiled plans to sell and market UnixWare 7
globally, SCO and IBM have joined forces with Dialogic Corporation and Tech
Data Corporation to provide Computer Telephony (CT) channel-ready
solutions. SCO, IBM and Dialogic, will work together to develop
ready-to-deploy CT solutions, and Tech Data will use its CT Division to
deliver these conveniently bundled packages for small and medium business
(SMB) resellers.

"SCO is excited about this strong push for CT solutions on UnixWare 7 and
SCO OpenServer," said Richard Treadway, vice president, Segment Marketing
and Business Development, SCO. "SMB resellers are looking for new solutions
to remain competitive in today's rapidly changing market, and CT ISVs are
looking for volume channels to market with strong partner support. SCO, IBM
and Dialogic are committed to the success of this program, and by working
with key CT ISVs we will jointly deliver integrated, channel-ready
solutions through TechData."

"This initiative is part of our strategy to deploy software on UnixWare and
Monterey that is targeted at expanding the Unix-on-Intel market," said
Rajiv Samant, AIX general manager, at IBM. "Our telephony platform with
SCO, Dialogic, and Tech Data will make it easy for computer telephony
application providers to deliver their software. This initiative, and
others that we will be launching in the coming months, will achieve the
Monterey goal of building a high-volume, shrink-wrapped UNIX."

Program Benefits To SMB Resellers and CT ISVs
This program provides SMB Resellers the ability to:
* differentiate themselves from peer VARs by offering CT Solutions

This program provides CT ISVs/application providers:
* a vehicle to address the Small and Medium Business market 
* partnership and support from industry leaders such as SCO, IBM and Dialogic 
* increased revenue by engaging a volume distribution leader such as Tech Data

"The strategic partnership between SCO and IBM will provide a total and
integrated CT solution for resellers looking to benefit from the explosive
telecommunications market," said Joe Serra, director of Tech Data's
computer telephony division. "Tech Data's single-SKU bundled solutions,
coupled with our industry renowned technical support services, provide
added opportunity for our resellers to answer end-user demands with
affordable, simple and complete telephony solutions."
