Sunflower Software, Inc.

Location: Prairie Village, KS


I was contacted by Rick Kerbel, the former president of Sunflower Software, who was able to grant non-commerical use for the titles that he had written. Some of the titles Sunflower Software offered were written by others and just sold by Sunflower, so those titles he was not able to grant permission. He granted permission for the following titles: Control, Disksort/Merge, Fireman, General Ledger, User, Meteors, DualPort, Mailmate, Search And Print, E.A.S.Y., US States, Magic Menu, Utilities, and HDOSx2. I have some of these titles and will image and upload them shortly.
