    LAS VEGAS, GeoFORUM, Aug. 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The SCO Group
 (SCO), previously Caldera International (Nasdaq:   CALD), today announced plans
 to release new upgrades to the company's three flagship server operating
 system products over the next six months.  The company, which services small-
 to-medium business and corporate branch office customers, began detailing
 plans at its annual GeoFORUM conference this week to introduce new versions of
 SCO OpenServer 5.0.7, SCO UnixWare 7.1.3 and SCO Linux 4.0.
     "SCO is the leading provider of UNIX solutions on Intel hardware," said
 Darl McBride, president and CEO, SCO.  "For nearly two decades, millions of
 SMB customers and thousands of the top retail, government and finance
 corporations around the world have come to depend on our solutions to keep
 their businesses running.  These new releases ensure the reliability,
 scalability, and high availability that they've come to expect from SCO, and
 will continue for many years to come."
     SCO OpenServer 5.0.7 will provide new software updates to include the
 latest hardware drivers and USB support to offer easier connectivity to next
 generation peripheral devices.  In addition, SCO OpenServer will provide
 updated development tools for easier integration with applications and an
 updated version of Merge 5.3 that allows customers to use Windows 98 and
 Windows Me client emulation with both SCO OpenServer and SCO UnixWare.  SCO
 OpenServer is expected to be available the first quarter of 2003.
     SCO UnixWare 7.1.3 (the successor release to Open UNIX 8.0) will provide
 updated USB support, improved networking performance as well as upgrades to
 hardware drivers.  The product will also include new and updated network
 applications and development tools.  SCO UnixWare 7.1.3 is expected to be
 available by December.
     SCO is introducing a new update service for both SCO OpenServer and SCO
 UnixWare this week called SCO Update.  This annual service allows customers to
 receive quarterly electronic delivery of software updates, new features,
 drivers, security virus alerts and other added benefits.  SCO Update is
 expected to be available by December for SCO UnixWare 7.1.3 and during the
 first quarter of 2003 for SCO OpenServer 5.0.7.
     SCO Linux 4.0, powered by UnitedLinux, is a joint development effort from
 SCO, Conectiva, SuSE and Turbolinux.  The UnitedLinux companies produced the
 first closed pre-release beta in early August and expect to have an open beta
 available in late September.  UnitedLinux has received broad industry support
 from partners such as AMD, Computer Associates, HP, IBM, Intel, and many
 others.  The first version of SCO Linux 4.0, powered by UnitedLinux, is
 expected to be available in November.
