Pegasus (shareware CD)

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Under the title Pegasus was from the SAD most famous German GmbH the shareware CD series sold.

At the time of publication, the CD-ROMs contained up to 650 MB of current German and international shareware . The series was produced by the Canyon company. Initially followed by Vol. 1, Vol. 2 etc., later the numbering scheme was date-oriented, for example 2/95, 1/97. In addition to Pegasus for DOS , Pegasus for Windows 3.1 / 95 and even an edition for OS / 2 were finally released . The last editions were only published for Windows after DOS and OS / 2 had lost their importance.

The increasing availability of the Internet and regular CD-ROM supplements to PC magazines probably meant that the Pegasus CDs were discontinued in 1997.

Comparable products were the CD-ROMs from TopWare (known from D-Sat , D-Info, among others ) and the international series "Night Owl".
