IBM's OS/2 2.0 OPERATING SYSTEM CHALKS UP ITS 12TH AND 13TH INDUSTRY AWARDS

 SOMERS, N.Y., April 26 /PRNewswire/ OS/2 (A) 2.0, the advanced operating system for personal computers, has been honored as "Product of the Year" in two categories by the readers of InfoWorld, a leading computer industry trade journal, IBM's (NYSE: IBM) Personal Software Products division announced today.
 These two awards bring to 13 the number of industry citations that OS/2 2.0, which was introduced in March 1992, has won since last December.
 In balloting conducted among the magazine's readers in March, IBM's OS/2 was named "Software Product of the Year" and overall "Product of the Year," both for 1992.
 InfoWorld's awards recognize "superior achievement" in personal computer hardware, software and networking products, according to the magazine. Although the editors nominate the products in each category, the readers select the winners. The overall "Product of the Year" award is based solely on write-in votes from the readers.
 "InfoWorld's readers represent an important audience for us and their grass roots support is an important measure of the industry," says John Patrick, vice president of sales and marketing for Personal Software Products. "As evidenced by these awards, OS/2 2.0 continues to achieve significant market momentum as the leading 32-bit operating system for today's high-performance personal computers."
