IBM OFFERS UNIQUE HOLIDAY GIFT IDEA

 IBM OFFERS UNIQUE HOLIDAY GIFT IDEA
 WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- IBM has the unique gift


for millions of Americans who regularly use a personal computer to educate their children, plan home finances, work at home, access on-line information services and play games.
 It's OS/2(a) 2.0, IBM's advanced -- yet easy-to-use -- operating system software for PCs. The key is multitasking, or running several different software programs simultaneously. For example, with OS/2 2.0, it becomes possible to search Prodigy for last minute holiday gift ideas, update the shopping list in a word processor, calculate the holiday budget in a spreadsheet program and add names and addresses to the greeting card list in a database -- all at the same time on one screen.
 OS/2 2.0 offers and easy-to-use graphical interface designed to mimic a desktop. Colorful objects, called icons, guide the user through their task. There are also tutorials and contextual help built into the software that provide on-screen answers to questions and invaluable tips.
 OS/2 2.0 was designed to protect a software user's application investment. As a result, PC users can run thousands of existing DOS, Windows(b) and OS/2 2.0 software programs, providing a lasting holiday gift value.
 There's no need to send a letter to the North Pole to get this gift delivered. OS/2 can be ordered by calling 1-800-3-IBM-OS2.
