Springboard: The Newsroom
Released in 1985 by Springboard Software
For IBM PC running DOS

Image quality: New/Unused

"The Newsroom" is a very simplified desktop publishing program aimed
at novices and children. It uses a simplified step-by-step interface
similar to the original "The Print Shop", and bundles a variety of
fun clipart images.

The Newsroom is designed to work on minimal hardware. It only
requires a PC or PCJr with one floppy drive, CGA, and 128K of ram.
Additionally, there were versions for the Apple II, and Commodore 64.

It also includes a unique communications feature that lets you easily
transfer documents between any two instances of The Newsroom, even
between the IBM/Apple/C64 platforms.

The IBM PC version requires DOS version 2 or higher (2.1 on the
PCJr), 128K of RAM, and CGA graphics.

Important: This software is copy protected! The included images will 
reproduce an unmodified protected disk.
