"The Santa Cruz Operation (SCO) Inc. last week announced the expansion of its product line to compete with Microsoft Corp.'s Small Business Server (SBS). Executives at the company are touting the new line as 'the most advanced operating system on Intel processors.' SCO's UnixWare 7 Release 7.1 Business Edition is targeted for the small to midsize business (SMB) market."

"The Business Edition includes Webtop, a browser interface based on SCO's Tarantella technology. Webtop enables server-based applications and server administration functions to be accessed securely from any Java-enabled browser for local or remote administration. The operating system, which is expected to ship later this month, offers 4 GB of RAM and is bundled with Netscape Communicator 4.0. The platform provides file and printer sharing for Unix, Novell and Windows clients through its bundled SCOVisionFS server and NetWare Unix client. Additionally, the product supports previous releases of UnixWare 7, SCO UnixWare 2.x and SCO OpenServer applications, as well as Linux apps."
