I can just agree and it's a pity.Thanks Paul for all your ports! I guess that one downside of porting is that you are at risk to get in love with the other system instead, ;) .

I am receiving the impact reading the description.  :o
Your distinguished services are wonderful.
However, I feel sorry for the thing that one of the supplies of the OS/2 software disappears.


If it is April Fool, it is relieved.

Hi,

I thought April's Fools was a US thing?

Absolutely not. I guess all (Ex-) Commonwealth countries have it, also "poisson d'avril" for all francophone countries and "Aprilscherz" for Germany and (partly) German-speaking countries like Austria and Switzerland ... and I'm pretty sure there's the same in Scandinavia and BeNeLux. Have to check on wikipedia though... ;)

Cheers,
Thomas

Yes, Warpcafe, in Norway our form of april fools originates in the french poisson d'avril.
