Jack, I'm told it does.  I haven't really tried it myself.  Not

Others here have reported that it does run with OS/2.

BTW, I trimmed all Win advocacy from the newsgroups line in an
effort to try to keep the "munchkin" activity here down to a
"dull" roar.

1. Win95 to be 32bit in 1997! Whoppie!

Well, they don't have to...isn't NT an "all" 32-bit Microsoft OS?? I
don't see the relevance of the above quote because when the next NT
comes out (Cairo?? Manila?? Osaka?? Or was it Bankok?? I've lost track
of all these code names...), it's going to have the Win95 interface.
Maybe that's what the quote *is* saying, people will have to wait till
'97 for Cairo to appear.
