Lotus SmartSuite For OS/2

IBM/Lotus SmartSuite is an office suite from Lotus software for Windows and OS/2. SmartSuite includes SmartCenter, 1-2-3, Word Pro, Freelance Graphics, Approach, Organizer, and ScreenCam.

SmartSuite was primarily targeted at corporate use. Its primary advantages were cross platform compatiblity with IBM OS/2, multithreaded 32-bit processing power under OS/2 prior to Windows 95, integration with Notes, and compatiblity with Lotus 1-2-3. It competed heavily against Microsoft Office. In 1995, Microsoft "punished" IBM for selling SmartSuite by withholding OEM Windows 95 licenses from them until the last second.
