Considering the copyright date, I'd say it's Warp 3.

It looks like Warp 3. The rotated square device was dropped in Warp 4.

try http://hobbes.nmsu.edu/pub/dos/os2demo.zip

This looks like the same diskette!

Warp 3. Possiably Warp 3 connect. I have a Warp 3 connect and that same disk somewhere.

(I say possiably W3 Connect as they may of used it for both)

ADD: for knowledge, I believe Warp 4 came out in 1996, maybe 1997. I think 1996 though.

It's not Warp3 connect. That would have the word "Connect" in the logo.

ASDI.001 sounds like it's the first (or only) media file for the show. The disk consists of a media player which plays things like ASDI.001 etc in sequence. It's not a real working sample.

That depends on the source of that demo disk. If my memory serves correctly almost all of the demos for warp 3/4 had fully functionable versions of OS2 on them or had the full versions that could be easily turned from Demo to working copys.

wasn't there also a difference between red disks and blue disks?

I have Warp 3 connect blue, and it looks nothing like that. Also, the disk is grey, there is a startup disk and a "Disk 1"

You find an image of it here: http://hobbes.nmsu.edu/h-browse.php?dir=/pub/dos look for "os2demo.zip"

It's a DOS slide-show program that does a presentation of OS/2. Ye see on the label that it requires DOS 3.3 or higher etc. It's a DOS app.

Of more interest is drk95.zip, a three-disk proggie that actually has some useful utilities in it.
