 SANTA CRUZ, CA (May 12, 1998)  Continuing to encourage progress and
 innovation of the UNIX System, SCO (NASDAQ:SCOC), the world's leading
 supplier of UNIX server systems and owner of the UNIX intellectual
 property, today announced the availability of special software licenses for
 "ancient" versions of the UNIX operating system. 
 Available immediately are licenses for the following versions: the Mini
 UNIX operating system; the UNIX V6 operating system; the PWB UNIX operating
 system; and the UNIX V7 operating system, which also covers Editions 1-5,
 and the 32V.
 These licenses permit hobbyists and enthusiasts to have access to the
 source code of these historic releases, for personal and non-commercial
 use, and to share experiences and code updates with other authorized
 individuals having corresponding licenses. SCO has received numerous
 favorable responses from UNIX enthusiasts around the world, including
 messages such as, "Future computer historians will greatly appreciate what
 you have achieved!" and "I've wanted access to this material for nearly 20
 years! Well done!"
 This activity is inline with SCO's existing programs that offer free
 licenses to UnixWare and SCO OpenServer system products and related
 software, including Java Development Kits, for personal and non-commercial
 use, and free memberships in SCO's Developer program for all UNIX System or
 LINUX system developers. 
 See for license terms and other information. A
 $100 fee is charged to offset cost of legal and administrative handling of
 the license. Since SCO does not provide the actual source code, please
