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.

#50 No Warp-eBusiness Client? So What?

Much as I want to see a client version of OS/2 Warp for e-Business (aka Warp5), I'm happily running Warp4 *NOW* and expect to do so for the forseeable future.

Hence, omitting OS/2 from your list of os'es on which one intends to run Mozilla, whether intentional or oversight, seems (at least to this biased observer) to be a correctible error. Just re-issue the poll, this time including a system *in the field* and *actively supported by its maker* that'll be more than capable of running Mozilla when it's released.

After all, Windows2000 won't be available until the second quarter of 1901... ;-)
