Hey guys,

I'm looking at tracking down the Bonus Pack CD so that I can get a copy of IBM Works for OS/2.

Anyone know where I can get this?

I'd agree. Often you can find copies of Warp 3 on e-bay for $5 or sometimes less.

Umm...what version of OS/2 are you running that you _don't_ have IBM Works?

eCS had it, Warp 4 had it, only the MCP's don't have it, but you would've had to have a prior OS/2 to get those, don't you?

Those days the Bonus Pack came on a 2nd CD

Yup, the bonus pack in 3 came either on a separate CD, or in the first copy of Warp that I got back in the fall of 1994, it came on a set of 3.5" disks... unfortunately the disks were sometimes problematic, I recall originally having to call IBM to get a few replacements, because the disks that came in the box were faulty.

Err...yes. That's what I mean I guess. I have v2.1 on up, so I know that if you had v3, you ought to have IBM Works.

Question is, _why_ would you want the v3 version, since the one on V4 and eCS is newer? Collectible?

(BTW, I still think IBM Works is quite a nice little package for a lot of casual home users. I still use it. Shame about the drag 'n drop and the "dynamic sharing", whatever you call it, of objects between the office apps).
