We’d like everyone who’s using Windows applications on a part-time basis to please stop.

The trouble with using Windows™ applications every once in a while, is that you’re only amazingly productive every once in a while.

This has got to stop. Which is why theres the Microsoft® Windows environment – the first and only graphical environment to let you work with multiple Windows or DOS applications without ever closing a single file, or quitting a single program.

You may never see your C prompt again. Just give Microsoft Windows a 40-hour work week and you’ll be pointing, clicking, cutting, pasting and flying through your work with the greatest of ease. Cut from a spreadsheet and paste onto a word processing document – without scissors and a copy machine. Exchange information, link files and programs, then watch your data get updated automatically, or if you prefer, at your command.

Call us at (800) 541-1261, Dept. J89 for more facts about how Windows can open up doors, and for our free Windows Shopping Catalog.

And see how the only way to get the most out of your Windows, is to look into ours.

Making it all make sense™
