Lotus Upgrade

Send Article to a Friend

Who says Prodigy is completely useless (and they claim that they will soon offer a true Macintosh interface and an Internet email gateway)? Joseph Gannon writes on Prodigy, "After posting a note on a local BBS to a Lotus software engineer stating I was going to sell my copy and go to Excel (giving the reasons why, of course - $119 for a maintenance upgrade) he forwarded my and another soon-to-be ex-Lotus user's comments to Lotus' marketing department. Well, it seems they listen. Here's an excerpt of Patrick Tyne's (of Lotus marketing) response: "We certainly can sympathize with any confusion resulting from the above situation. In light of the recent frustrations we have observed, we believe it will best serve our customers for us to immediately make available a 'special upgrade offer' to all registered users of 1-2-3 for Macintosh R1.0. Effective immediately through 31-Mar-93 , if you are a registered user of 1-2-3 for Macintosh R1.0 you are eligible for the 'Lotus Technology Guarantee Upgrade', and can upgrade to R1.1 for $49.00 (regardless of when you purchased your copy of R1.0). This offer is only available directly from Lotus by calling 800/872-3387."
