Personal OS/2 (Warp) and Windows for Workgroups 3.11

Personal OS/2 (Warp) and Windows for Workgroups 3.11

Post by Adam Zi » Wed, 20 Jul 1994 06:22:44



        I have a question that perhaps some of the experts here could
answer. OK... two questions. :)
        1) When will Personal OS/2 (Warp, OS/2 Performance Edition, etc.) be
released?
        2) When Personal OS/2 is released, will it support computers running
Windows for Workgroups 3.11, or won't it?
        Please mail me with any answers you might be able to provide.
        Thanks in advance!

Date for actual release of Warp is not finalised. It's still in beta, and
you can never tell what last-minute items this may throw up.   However,
the product is still on track to be out this Autumn.

I'm pretty sure it'll support the base 3.11 code, but absolutely certain
it won't support the peer networking functions.
Cheers,

Steve

 I just attempted ftp at software.watson.ibm.com and had
no luck locating anything resembling the above. Has anyone else
tried? Would it be to much to ask what directory the files are in
and what the filename(s) are?

 In the future I hope announcements like this would include
all the info needed to retrieve the file so as not to waste
my time and bandwidth.

One final. I assume(ducking) I used the correct ftp address.
Thanks
