On the web, content is king. Far more important than glitzy graphics, content makes people come back again and again.
Let's see how WebFoot measures this month's chosen web sites:

Ratings
Info
Content Links Glitz Type Site (url) and Comments
A+ A+ B   OS/2 OS/2 Warp on the 'Net (http://www.nfwa.com/os2/). This superbly-organized and comprehensive link site is the best one yet. From chilly St. John's, Newfoundland, where analyzing OS/2 is decidedly better than chasing the whale.
C- C   B   Software Mensys (http://www.mensys.nl/indexuk.html). Well quack me silly, I thought this was going to be the IQ people. Product summaries, Top 50 list -- see what OS/2 packages are hot in The Netherlands.
B   F   D   HTML Willcam's Comprehensive HTML Cross Reference (http://www.willcam.com/cmat/html/). Writing HTML by hand? Tired of flipping through books for the proper syntax? Every tag is defined here.
A   F   B+ Magazine 32 Bits Online (http://www.32bitsonline.com). "The Multiplatform Magazine for OS/2 - Linux - Java - Windows 95/NT," OS/2 Computing! Magazine has a new name and a wider scope. Back issues (of both mags) are online.
B+ D   B+ News Group Introduction to comp.os.os2.announce and Posting Policies (http://www.bix.com/pub/os2ann/pindex.htm). Done any OS/2 development, large or small? Share your venture with the rest of us -- here are the instructions.
B   B   C+ Utilities SofTouch Systems, Inc. (http://www.softouch.com/wkstatoc.html). Utilities for you. GammaTech, UniMaint, FileStar/2, REXX SuperSet/2, more.
B   B+ C   OS/2 OS/2 Headquarters (http://www.mindspring.com/~os2headquarters). Tom Nadeau's site is a smorgasbord of something for everyone. The Duck refuses a tighter classification; this is just "OS/2".
B+ F   C+ Disk Drives Primary, Extended, Logical, Free Space! What Do I Need? (http://www.powerquest.com/support/logical.html). The Partition Magic people have a good technical white paper on disk drive partitions. Think you're a power user? Read this and make sure.
B   B- C   Software Telecommunications Software for OS/2 (http://www.oberonsoftware.com/). TE/2 from Oberon Software does telecommunications, terminal emulation, hints for FaxWorks compatibility, more.
B   F   B- Programming Preditor from Compuware Corporation (http://www.compuware.com/preditor). Preditor 3.0 programmer's editor has new Java and updated Cobol support, offers free demo download.
