Yeah, the OS/2 devotees are living in some kind of fantasy warp. It *is*
a terrific OS--if you can get it to work. Many people can't, and it's not
because we're complete idiots.

More and more , I find myself returning to basics. I'm using XyWrite 3.55
again, with v. 4 for occasional use only; I "downgraded" from OS/2 to
Windoze, and if I could just figure out a way to get faxes in the
background with a DOS program, I'd go back to XyWrite and plain DOS.

Hey, man, I'm a writer, not a computer professional. I don't have time
for this crap.
