Summary
  • IBM is increasing its marketing efforts of its OS/​2 operating system because Microsoft Corp's Chicago operating system is not expected to be available for purchase until late 1994. IBM claims its readily available software has the same functionality as Microsoft's package. IBM executives report the software includes multitasking, which lets users complete two tasks at the same time, such as printing a document while connected to an online information service. However, there are many more independent software vendors developing applications designed to run under Chicago than there are developers working on OS/​2 applications. Microsoft has shipped about 50 million copies of its current Windows GUI software, compared to the approximately five million IBM OS/​2 copies that have been sold.
