New Deal, Inc. – no longer operating
New Deal is a software and Internet services company founded to take advantage of the massive opportunity created by regular forced “obsolescence” of tens of millions of computers by the latest versions of Microsoft software. New deal software is the catalyst that will launch used PCs as a viable long-term market. The company provides an alternative software platform, and point-and-click Internet and productivity suites, able to run effectively on ANY PC, from a 286s to Pentiums. The code base represents well over $50 million and hundreds of man years in development. Currently there are tens of millions of “pre-Pentium” (i.e., 286/386/46) computers in warehouses and closets that are fully functional but cannot meet the bloated hardware requirements of the latest Microsoft system and application software. These “legacy” computers represent a huge untapped market niche and the company is entering into a wide range of partnering and licensing agreements both in the U.S. and internationally, with new and used hardware OEMs, online networks, software vendors, and Internet service providers.
