Subject: Metrowerks Listens and Acts with Special Offer
From: Ron Liechty (firstname.lastname@example.org)
After a review Metrowerks has altered its policy in regards to
bundling the Macintosh and Windows CD's for our current CodeWarrior
users. This decision was made not because of any legal reason but
because it was the fair and just thing to do. Metrowerks values our
customers more than any other business that I know. As soon as we
heard from our customers we revisited the policy.

We are sending this WarriorGram today to inform you of our recent
company announcements, also posted at http://www.metrowerks.com
