Dear Mr. Gates:

..


We use Windows extensivly, but we believe that the DOS environment with or without Windows, is too fragile to support graphical workstations with the multiple simultanous communications sessions which are coming the norm.

..


We urge the Microsoft port Windows applications to OS/2 in the most direct and expeditous manner possible and enhance them to exercise all of OS/2s capabilities as quickly as you are then able.
