Hi there,

AFAIK, in the States OS/2 is still in use... mainly by banks.   I have
limited experience with it .. funny you mention.. about four months ago I
found a copy of OS/2 3.0 Warp still in the shrink-wrap at a local
thrift-shop, I was unable to use it online... from what I read 4.0 is
required for this(?).

I don't blame you, I felt the same about Netware before Novell
switched IPX/SPX out for TCP/IP..

Using .Net? Need to know more about .Net Security?
