<p>SCO outlines roadmap for the next release of SCO OpenServer and subsequent upgrades</p>
Sydney - February 20th, 2004</p>
<p>The SCO Group, Inc. ("SCO") (Nasdaq: SCOX), the owner of the UNIX(r) operating system and a leading provider of UNIX-based solutions, has announced the delivery of SCO OpenServer Update Pack 2, a key milestone in the OpenServer development roadmap. This announcement underscores a continuing development effort begun in August 2003 for Legend, the codename for the upcoming release of SCO OpenServer scheduled for release in late 2004 or early 2005.</p>
<p>SCO OpenServer Update Pack 2 builds on SCO's award-winning, secure and highly reliable UNIX operating system by providing new hardware support for Universal Serial Bus (USB) - allowing customers to easily connect to many USB-compatible devices. Customers may now leverage USB 1.1 and 2.0 compatible printers to enhance their IT infrastructures. In Update Pack 2, SCO also begins bundling and supporting the object-relational database management system, PostgreSQL. This system gives SCO customers and partners access to hundreds of already-built applications and the power to build other database-driven solutions out of the box.</p>
<p>"SCO UNIX solutions are the backbone of many Australian and New Zealand companies," said Kieran O'Shaughnessy, Regional General Manager Australia and New Zealand, The SCO Group. "SCO OpenServer has been a core component of our entire UNIX business. OpenServer Legend represents SCO's focus continued on UNIX and a promise to our customers that SCO will continue to deliver superior UNIX-based integration, reliability, security and scalability on Intel and AMD architectures."</p>
<p>SCO will continue outlining enhanced UNIX-based features and upgrades as part of its Legend development effort, including new mail server and enhanced Web Services support. The upgrade to OpenServer, based on proven UNIX System V Release 5 (SVR5) technology, will include greater database, Java and application support. As part of the OpenServer development roadmap, SCO also plans to announce enhancements for increased security, Windows compatibility, support for Web applications including the Apache Web server and Mozilla browser and integration of SCO's own SCOx Web Services.</p>
<p>The first beta release of Legend is scheduled for the company's annual conference, SCO Forum 2004, June 27-29 in Las Vegas.</p>
