Sorry if this has been asked, but I didn't see it anywhere, and it
isn't on the faq list.

I have an old copy of OS/2 (1.0) which I got a few months ago in order
to take advantage of IBM's upgrade policy.  Who do I contact to get on
an interested parties list so I'll be able to upgrade in March (or

Call 1-800-3IBM-OS2 and ask them.  Every time I have called they have
told me that they don't have an upgrade procedure implemented yet.
But last time I called they took my name and address and said they
would send out an upgrade notice/card when it became available.

According to people in Canada, IBM there has already sent these
notices out.

 
 
 

1. TO BUY OS/2 2.0; release by March 31.

For those who haven't bought OS/2 yet..

    Just talked to a ibm technical personal on 1-800-31bm-os2.
He said that $99 will be charged to PC-DOS owners to upgrade
to os/2 1.3.  AND....the real FREE upgrade to os/2 2.0 will happen
at March 31st sharp.  Free technical will follow 1.3 for 90 days
and for 60 days when 2.0 is available.
The cost will be $150 for ms-dos upgrade to os/2 1.3 -> 2.0
Just a difference of $50, same otherwise).
He cannot say where he can find a written 'proof' for that,
but he did mentioned there exists an internal document that
details the current pricing policy in ibm inc.

      As to the rumor of free/$49 upgrade from dos (pc/ms) to
os/2 for free or just $49... he said it may well be a delibrate
attempt to slow ibm's os/2 sale.  Though he said he does hope the
news/ruumor is true.

     For LA owners... no luck.  You'll have to pay to get the
upgrade to GA  You bought the right to use the beta only..
