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.

I like to follow this site, since Mozilla is a very interesting project, and there is generally a lot of great news. But if there was as much effort put into Mozilla as there is into the polls, it would have shipped months ago.

Please,'s a perl script asking simple questions. Nothing more. Do something constructive with your time. I see several interesting articles with 0-5 responses, which actually could affect the project. At this point, there are 45 responses to a news posting about a new poll, most of which are people proclaiming that they use OS/2. Could someone enlighten me as to what the big deal is?
