It’s not about fixing old windows.
It’s about opening new doors.
OS/2® 2.0 is more than a new version. It’s a new vision. A true
operating system that takes your DOS, Windows™ and OS/2 applications
beyond the limitations of the past – lets you do more with them than
you ever could with DOS or DOS with Windows.
Unlike Windows, OS/2 2.0 can run multiple DOS, Windows and OS/2 applications at
the same time, in separate windows on the same screen. Print a document and
calculate a spreadsheet while you create a new letter. Use icons to print
documents without even opening the program. You can even “cut and paste”
between any applications – the possibilities are endless. And with
OS/2 Crash Protection™, each running application is protected from
the next, so if one goes down it won’t affect the others.
Of course, there’s a graphical interface that makes OS/2 easy to
install, learn and use – the Workplace Shell™. 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 for a whole lot less, OS/2 gives you a whole lot more.
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.*
