New Poll Up

Sunday August 15th, 1999

The last poll was apparently unclear, so we have a new poll up.

Let me make something clear to all the OS/2 users in a tizzy because their OS of choice wasn't in the last poll. The poll's intent was not to catalog reader's OS of choice. If that was the case, Win9x and WinNT would have been on the list, as well. The poll was meant to gauge expectations for new OS revisions (with the addition of Mozilla on Java, which is a new platform in and of itself). I've seen no indication (and have yet to find any) that a new revision of the consumer OS/2 is planned. I have come across vague rumblings that StarDock might take over development, but that's really not enough to qualify as a new revision. That is the only reason OS/2 wasn't on the list.

The poll was not worded clearly, and I apologize. I will make an effort in the future to phrase the poll better. However, trying to imply that I deliberately left OS/2 off of the poll for some malicious reason is absurd.


#15 I don't know how I can say this any clearer.

We have already done a poll regarding personal OS choice (the first poll we did, I believe). OS/2 was on that list.

The latest poll was regarding *new revisions* and new platforms. As you may recall, Win95 and Win98 were not on the list, either. Warp 5 isn't happening, from everything I've seen (on IBM's website, from a search for Warp 5 at Altavista, and a look at the teamos2.org website), therefore it was not on the list.

But, like I said, I didn't get the intent of the poll across adequately, apparently, and that's why the poll is no longer up.

There is currently a Mozilla port for OS/2 in active development.
