Effort to Develop the Korean Business Market


OREM, UT-July 30, 2001- Caldera International Inc. (Nasdaq: CALD), the
global leader "Unifying UNIX(r) with Linux(r) for Business(tm)," today
announced it has signed a strategic alliance MOU with LinuxKorea Co. Ltd.,
Korea's largest Linux system integrator, to cooperatively develop the

after reviewing Caldera's unifying strategy on UNIX and Linux for Business.


As terms of the agreement, Caldera and LinuxKorea will collaborate in system
integration, consulting and application development for Caldera's
OpenLinux(tm) and Open UNIX platforms. Caldera and LinuxKorea's first step
will be to create a Linux support center that will serve as a support portal
for the two companies. In addition, they will plan co-promotion and
co-marketing activities with other Linux-based solution venders to promote
Linux to the Korean enterprise market.


"Caldera is pleased to work with LinuxKorea to provide Linux solutions for
business in Korea," said Ken Bergenthal, managing director, Asia Pacific
Alliances, Caldera. "Together we will allow new and existing corporate
customers to finally make the move to Linux-based solutions. The Korean
industry has been looking for a global and local leader to step up and take
the Linux industry to the next stage. Caldera and LinuxKorea now have the
answer."


"Caldera's developer level engineering support and education support are
invaluable assets for penetrating the enterprise market in Korea," said
Hyuk-Jin Park, CEO of LinuxKorea. "Together, our two companies have the
Linux technology needed for front-end and back-end computing. Caldera is the
world's largest Linux company, and owns the technology for unifying UNIX
with Linux.


"LinuxKorea is a major Korean Linux company with significant Linux porting
capability and system integration consulting experience. The collaboration
of our two companies provides the momentum for a successful launch of Linux
into the Korean IT environment. We also hope to extend the Linux business
area into the UNIX market with Caldera's new strategy."
