Re: SEUL: Things I would like to ask

[need to get this list changed over to my new address...]

OS/2 and DOS

> 2) Were you a Windows or GUI OS/2 user?

DOS since 1988, OS/2 since 1993.

In fact, I just installed Warp 4 on my system last night after a
several month absense from OS/2.  My reasoning is that I wanted to run
VisualAge for Java and play Stardock Entrepreneur.  :-)

I was reminded, though, that OS/2 has about all the "qualities" I hate
about NT:  Bloated slow registry, clunky GUI, occasional crash, owned
by a domination minded corporation.  Linux is still my primary OS BY

Did some work on a Sun at college.

Work study program at college - was the student Webmaster

UNIX for server, 'Doze 3.1 for clients

That's a pretty cool idea ... a neighborhood LAN!  Linux and SEUL
would certainly be prime candidates for managing it.
