SCO eSTREET for Partners & Developers -- January 2003

2003 has come and with it the opportunities to continue to grow the SCO brand and build stronger relationships with our partners.

This is going to be an exciting year for SCO. We have a new release of SCO OpenServer dropping this month, we are attending tradeshows and announcing new ideas and plans, and we continue to maintain and grow the TeamSCO Partner Program.

2002 provided us with an excellent springboard to make the jump to new products, renewing and creating relationships with our partners and enhancing the programs and products you already know.

As we begin our journey through this new year, we ask for your help in building new business for all of us and growing the business we already have. SCO's success will come with your success and we are committed to seeing that happen.

Here's to a new and exciting year -- 2003!!

SCO Products: The Name You Trust to Grow Your Business

SCO has released, and will release, new versions of its old standards -- UnixWare, SCO Linux, and the SCO Update Service. With these new releases, you can find the right platform for your application and customers that will grow your business.

*** UnixWare 7.1.3 -- The Right Choice for Scalability, Reliability & Security ***
UnixWare(R) 7.1.3 marks the return of the UnixWare brand name as the premier UNIX Operating System for industry standard Intel and AMD processor systems. UnixWare 7 is the right choice for companies who place a high value on the scalability, reliability and security inherent in UNIX technology based systems.

Like its predecessor release (Open UNIX 8.0) UnixWare 7.1.3 runs both Linux and native UNIX applications, using the Linux Kernel Personality Technology (LKP). The LKP feature provides a more scalable, stable, secure and reliable environment than Linux can offer today, and has been updated in UnixWare 7.1.3 to support multi-byte characters.

UnixWare 7.1.3 has been updated to enable SCO Update Service for UnixWare. This innovative service provides electronic notification and delivery or operating system changes and gives customers control of the upgrade process. SCO Update Services simplifies and streamlines the process of deploying new technology and keeping deployed systems up to date.

UnixWare 7.1.3 consists of a comprehensive family of pre-configured Editions and optional products to build and deploy UNIX and Linux applications.

*** SCO Linux Server 4.0 Powered by UnitedLinux ***
SCO Linux 4.0 powered by UnitedLinux is the next generation enterprise class Linux operating system. It is built on industry standards and contains the reliability and stability characteristics that have long been the hallmark of SCO platforms. Its advanced features make it an ideal solution for any customer who is looking to replace proprietary platforms to achieve the price performance that only industry standard solutions can provide.

IHVs, OEMs and ISVs have enthusiastically endorsed SCO Linux because finally there is a clear answer to questions: Which Linux distribution should I write my application on? Which Linux distribution should I certify my hardware and application to? The answer, of course, is SCO Linux 4 powered by UnitedLinux.

SCO offers 4 editions of SCO Linux, to meet the needs of a range of business customers. All editions include 1 year of maintenance bundled with the product. Find out which one is right for you.

*** SCO Update Service -- Leverage Technology Today ***
Technology advances are occurring at an ever-increasing pace. IT departments are faced with the challenge of leveraging technology improvements to stay ahead of the competition. Most technology suppliers deliver new features by releasing major new versions of software every 18 - 24 months. This "big bang" approach to software releases creates an artificial lag time between when technology is available and when it is actually deployable. Business that rely on leading edge technology to remain competitive simply can't afford to wait. The traditional "major release" method of making software available is also disruptive. Whether businesses use in house IT services or rely on a third party to maintain their systems, the periods of downtime associated with installing and testing major system changes are unacceptable. Now, SCO has a better way.

SCO Update Service simplifies and streamlines the process of deploying new technology and keeping deployed systems up to date. This innovative service provides electronic delivery of operating system changes, gives customers control of the upgrade process and helps customers accurately budget for the cost of system upgrades.

This Update Service is available for UnixWare 7.1.3, OpenServer 5.0.7 (when available in 1Q '03), SCO Linux 4.0 and later releases of those platforms.
