No. OS/2 v4 GA was not entirely Y2K compliant. But it is after FP5 (FP9 is
current, and running nicely here). This is one primary reason that
there will be a v5 client, sometime next year.
Carl has done some tests, and determined that Xy4-DOS is basically Y2K compliant
(assuming BIOS and OS compliance), and that the one dinky problem (I forget what)
is readily XPL-workaround-able.
Why is anyone worried about this anyway? Seems silly to me. The OS does
the disk filing and date-stamping, not XyWrite. Just import a DOS directory
display, if Xy's isn't 100%...
