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.


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

Ok, well then you obviously didn't search very hard. There are several versions of OS/2 currently in development. Including Warp Server (which just came out with version 5) and Workspace on Demand 2.0 which should be out soon. The fate of the client version of OS/2 isn't for sure yet, but even in light of this fact there *ARE* several versions of OS/2 currently under development and cannot be ignored. So I am sorry to say it, but no matter how confused many of the users are, you are wrong in at least one respect.
