There’s a place in this world for DOS and Windows.
And you’re looking at it.

OS/2® 2.0 isn’t about leaving your DOS and Windows™ applications behind. It’s about moving them ahead – doing more with them than ever before.

Now you can run DOS, Windows and OS/2 applications at the same time, in separate windows on the same screen. Create a new letter while using your fax/modem. Print charts as you calculate a complex spreadsheet. Even “cut and paste” between any applications – and more. But OS/2 doesn’t just enhance your current applications. It protects vour investment in them. And preserves your choices as more become available, including new 32-bit applications.

But maybe the best part is that for less than the cost of DOS and Windows, you get the capabilities of both. Plus all the added benefits of OS/2 2.0 – including Adobe Type Manager.™ So with OS/2 2.0, whatever applications you use, you’ve come to the right place. For an IBM authorized dealer near you, or to order OS/2 2.0 from IBM – at special introductory prices of $49 for Windows users and $99 from any DOS – call 1 800 3-IBM-OS2.*
