Windows Southern Edition



Dear Consumers:

It has come to our attention that a few copies ofthe WINDOWS  SOUTHERN EDITION may have inadvertently been shipped outside the South. If you have one of these, you may need some help understanding the commands. The southern edition may be recognized by the unique opening screen. It reads WINDERS with a background art of Gen.Robert E.Lee superimposed on a Confederate flag.  It is shipped with a Dukes of Hazzard screen saver.
