SCOUG OS/2 For You - February 1998


February 21st - Warp meets Mac!

Write once, run everywhere may not just apply to Java these days. At least with respect to OS/2 programs on a Mac. These days you can run OS/2 apps quite nicely on a Mac! Don't prematurely conclude that someone has taken leave of their senses. Instead, watch Mac user Jason Nagler and our own Mark Abramowitz install OS/2 and run OS/2 apps using Connectix Corporation's Virtual PC at our next general meeting.

Virtual PC had Mark laughing all the way through an OS/2 installation, and you'll be amused and amazed, too, when you see how well Virtual PC provides complete flexibility in a multi-platform environment. Jason and Mark will not only run OS/2 programs on a Mac, but will try to run a Windows Program on OS/2 on a Mac! This is truly an amazing product!

Lots of fun and frivolity is guaranteed, so join us.

After the presentation, we'll have a question and answer period for those things that have been bugging you. And, a raffle. Then it's on to the SIGs, only two of which now meet on Sat:

General Interest - will look at WarpCast and other resources on the Web for finding out what's new with OS/2.

Programming - will examine DLLs - what they are, how they are utilized in OS/2, and how to create them for specific programming environments including C/C++, REXX, and Java.

There's change in the wind for SCOUG's Networking SIG. They've moved, literally, to 7 PM the third Tue. of the month and are joing forces with the OCIPUG OS/2 SIG. So, this month's meeting which continues work on the raffle program will be on Feb 17th. (There's more information at www.scoug.com/os24u/1998/netsig.html.)

Later in the month on Monday the 23rd, the Internet SIG will address dialers, HTML4, a new web authoring tool, and press on to data warehousing.

A Quick Look Back

Speaking of fun and frivolity, a hearty thanks to Paul Wirtz for his demonstration of IBM's WorkSpace On-Demand (WSOD). We all saw the enormous potential that this new product has for a corporate environment, and saw OS/2's strengths and flexibility show up in another fine product. Thanks Paul, and thanks also to Steve Schiffman for the hard work he put in helping Paul!
