My suggestion is to stay with Windows, and look at NT when it comes out. It has the same look and feel of Windows (i.e. you won't have to retrain folks on how to use OS/2), plus it's much faster than OS/2 and uses 32 bit coding to provide a 32 bit operating system (unlike OS/2 which uses a lot of 16 bit code to provide 32 bit system). The system requirements are about the same between OS/2 and NT as well. I have seen that NT will have some really nice security provisions too. We have about 75 machines with hard drives, windows and a multitude of other applications, so I understand what you are facing...sometimes makes for a VERY long day troubleshooting.. .<sigh> Paul Maxson Innovation Center - Glendale College Glendale, Arizona MAXSON@GC.BITNET
