Old OS/2 publicity

eComStationNews.com - Fri, 20140926 - 09:23 -0600

I'm currently in the process of cleaning out some old files. Rather than toss I'm scanning some of the OS/2 promotional material and uploading it to Google sites. The URL for the site is:

There are currently only a few items, though I'll be adding more from time to time. The "Contents" page has a short description of each item. Some PL/I for OS/2 documents are filed under "PL/I documents" and non-PL/I OS/2 material under "OS/2 documents".
