Mar 19, 2001, 00:00 ET from Tarantella Inc.

    SANTA CRUZ, Calif., March 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Tarantella Inc., a wholly
 owned subsidiary of The Santa Cruz Operation, Inc. (Nasdaq:   SCOC), today
 announced an agreement with systems integrator Gold-Tech to offer Tarantella
 Enterprise 3 web-enabling software to Canadian enterprise customers.  The
 agreement delivers this cutting edge solution to an expanding market by
 leveraging Montreal-based Gold-Tech's understanding of the Canadian market.
     Tarantella has quickly become a major force in both enterprise computing
 and e-commerce, providing state-of-the-art solutions that expand the reach of
 what is accessible through a web browser. Tarantella Enterprise 3 software
 web-enables Windows, web-based, Linux mainframe and UNIX applications,
 allowing remote users anywhere to securely access vital information. The user
 accesses applications through a "webtop" that is easy to deploy and simple to
 use, and secure since the system administrator retains control over what
 end-users are able to access. Tarantella software is suitable for use large
 enterprises and Application Service Providers (ASPs) who want to deliver
 applications to their users over the Internet.
     "The Canadian market is a key component of our global growth plans," said
 Edmundo Costa, vice president of world wide channel sales for Tarantella, Inc.
 "Gold-Tech is an ideal partner for taking our technology to enterprises and
 ASPs. Their expertise and depth of knowledge of the Internet, have already
 helped  major clients streamline their operations, save time, and realize
 substantial cost savings."
     Gartner Group predicts that webtop technology will reach mainstream status
 by 2002. Gold-Tech was one of the earliest Canadian integrators to recognize
 the potential of the webtop and the Tarantella enabling technology. Gold-Tech
 has implemented Tarantella Enterprise 3 in several major projects, including a
 major integration project for Nortel. "We gave Nortel Networks an easy way to
 deploy shop floor applications, and to keep those applications up to date on a
 real-time basis," said Jean-Pierre Gendreau, Director of Gold-Tech's
 Tarantella Division.
     Regardless of whether the customer is large or small, Gold-Tech uses
 Tarantella Enterprise 3 to bring value to the table. "The biggest advantage is
 to help our customers grow their businesses. Not just to achieve a better
 network, but to answer their needs," said Gendreau. "I've been in the
 technology field for fifteen years, and I've switched over completely to
 Tarantella Enterprise products. Although I still use several complementary
 products, I put almost all my time into the Tarantella solution, because I
 truly think that it's the best solution customers can find on the market
 today."
