And in what must be among the shortest statements of direction on record: In addition, IBM does not intend to complete fulfillment of Statements of General Direction regarding Windows NT (PowerPC Edition), including those announced in Software Announcement 295-267 on June 19, 1995 and IBM does not intend to continue further Windows NT development for the RS/6000.
