Microsoft OS/2 SDK 1.03

The Microsoft OS/2 SDK includes pre-release builds of OS/2, beta development tools, sample code, and loads of documentation. These were released prior to the OS/2 1.0 and 1.1 releases. Microsoft charged $3,000 in 1987 for the SDK. It was criticized as overpriced, buggy, and slow.

These were superseded by the smaller and less expensive Microsoft OS/2 Programmer's Toolkit
