Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Very sad.
I loved OS/2. I used it professionally until 2000. It's proof that excellence is NOT enough when facing a monopoly, and should be used as an example as to WHY OSS (particularly the GPL) is necessary for the health of the industry.
Imric's Tips for Living
  • Paranoia Is a Survival Trait
  • Pessimists are never disappointed - but sometimes, if they are very lucky, they can be pleasantly surprised...
  • Even though everyone is out to get you, it doesn't matter unless you let them win.

Nothing is as simple as it seems in the beginning,
As hopeless as it seems in the middle,
Or as finished as it seems in the end.

New Remember watching the Senate hearings...
...and Mr Gates saying that his monopoly would crumble if a voice enabled OS hit the market (and having everyone nod in agreement)...fully realizing that OS2 had been on the market for a couple of years at that point and it was voice enabled.

Still makes me shake my head in disbelief that noone...not one person in the room was informed enough to even make that challenge.

Fighting and romance are weirdly similar in many ways. Two people lock eyes in a crowded room. Everybody can feel the intensity of the emotions between them. One of them suggests that they step outside. “Come on, just you and me.” It starts out dignified, but they end up rolling around, tearing at each other’s clothing.

Also, both fighting and romance tend to look a lot better in movies than they do in real life.
