     Access to technical support is one of the key contributors to adoption of
 Linux in business.  Caldera is the only Linux vendor offering a full range of
 enterprise class services for all major Linux distributions on a worldwide
 basis.  With service centers around the world, customers now have a powerful
 choice for Linux support, professional services, education and online
 services.
     The expanded Linux distribution coverage is included in all four of
 Caldera Global Services' practices:
 
     --  Support Services, which provides a wide range of support offerings
         tailored to a diverse set of customer needs for high quality diagnosis
         and quick resolution, including 24X7 phone and email support by highly
         qualified Linux professionals;
     --  Professional Services, which helps partners and customers in
         large-scale project work, solution implementation and custom software
         engineering, while also serving customers in small footprint and
         dedicated function system markets;
     --  Education, which establishes partnerships with IT training
         organizations around the world to offer the highest quality training
         on Linux and UNIX platforms and products using Caldera's OpenLearning
         Courseware;
     --  Online Services, which, with services such as Volution Online,
         provides a software asset management solution that reduces the cost of
         monitoring and managing Linux systems.
 
     Underscoring Caldera Global Services' expertise, Network Computing, a CMP
 Media LLC magazine, recently gave Caldera Support Services its Editor's Choice
 award for Linux support as well as named Caldera as a finalist for the 2002
 Well-Connected Awards in the category of Linux Support.  Caldera Support
 Services was chosen for its ability to provide the highest level of support
 for corporate customers who develop or support solutions on all major Linux
 distributions.
     "With Caldera Global Services' proven track record, thousands of worldwide
 customers such as Pizza Hut, Eckerds, NASDAQ, NEC, Deutsche Bahn, National
 Westminster Bank and McDonalds trust Caldera as their services solution
 provider.  Our expansion to support all Linux distributions allows customers
 to confidently roll out Linux solutions backed up by a worldwide professional
 team," said Reg Broughton, senior vice president, Operating Systems and
 Services Business Line, Caldera.  "In addition, Caldera's history in UNIX
 services, our long-term Linux expertise and our global infrastructure,
 including multi-lingual support centers around the world, position us better
 than other Linux vendor to provide business-focused services."
     "As a Value Add Distributor of Caldera UNIX and Linux products, it's
 critical for us to receive quality support in a timely manner for all the
 various operating systems and software products that EBIZ Enterprises support.
 With our customers depending on quick and accurate support, we have always
 been able to rely on Caldera Global Services," said Pamela Stratton, technical
 support manager of EBIZ Enterprises.  "Caldera has provided EBIZ with
 consistent high quality service and unmatched technical ability over the
 years, and now with CGS supporting all Linux distributions, they are a
 logical, one-stop support partner for EBIZ Enterprises."
     "DTR Business Systems has significant experience in configuring,
 supporting and trouble-shooting UNIX, Linux and Windows based servers.  In
 fact, our technical expertise is a 'value-add' that our customers have come to
 count on.  But, when we deal with an especially complex or difficult problem,
 it is nice to have a major support organization like Caldera to turn to," said
 Steve Moritsugu, director of DTR technical support.
