Internet-savvy Office Suite and OpenLinux' Internet Protocols Extend Interaction Between Information and the Internet

Provo, UT--February 17, 1997--Caldera Inc. and STAR DIVISION GmbH today announced plans
for an OpenLinux port of StarOffice 3.1, praised in the trade press as a technologically pioneering office suite. The OpenLinux port of StarOffice 3.1 will be shipped with future versions of OpenLinux. StarOffice 3.1 adds full-featured, Internet-savvy productivity applications to OpenLinux' broad collection of Internet/networking protocols and open-source operating system.

"The addition of StarOffice 3.1 to the OpenLinux product line follows Caldera's focus to
extend connectivity between end users, networks and the Internet," said Bryan Sparks, president and CEO of Caldera. "The addition of StarOffice to OpenLinux dramatically increases the users' ability to browse, author and publish to the Internet while accessing information remote or local from corporate networks."

Marco B&#246rries, President and CEO of German-based STAR DIVISION adds, "According to
IDC, StarOffice attained a market share of 21.9 percent in Germany within just three months of
introduction. The StarOffice/OpenLinux business suite solution gives end users unmatched interaction between productivity applications, Intranets and the Internet."

The StarOffice/OpenLinux solution extends existing environments by providing Inter/Intranets
solutions that include:

Stand-alone or Remote administration/authoring workstation (client and server integration with corporate environments, like Novell, SCO UNIX, Microsoft and others)
Development platform (open-source model and a variety of Application Programming Interfaces)
Workgroup server (cost-effective, secure Netscape FastTrack server option)

resources, and includes:

StarWriter 3.1 (word processor)
StarCalc 3.1 (spreadsheet)
StarDraw 3.1 (graphics and presentation package)
StarImage 3.1 (image manipulation)
StarChart (bar, pie and many other charts)
