News: Great push for OS/2: IBM merges OS/2 and Java division

That is good news. Look at http://www.javaworld.com too.
They did some Java server benchmarks using Valano and if
Warp could have handled over 400 simultaneous connections
it was looking to kick some butt. Don't know why they tested
Warp 4 client and not Warp 4 Server because it had to be dropped
from the multi-processor tests.

It does look like IBM is serious about Java and bringing OS/2
in with the Java group should be a good thing. Somehow the
name has to go to keep the press from pummeling it. Just look
at the last sentence of the article...
"Currently, OS/2 Warp Server accounts for less than 4 percent of
the overall server OS market, according to ZD Market Research, in
La Jolla, Calif."

Now McNT never got that kind of disrespect and McWindows 95 had
more native applications available for it BEFORE IT SHIPPED.
ZD (and most press) just hate OS/2.

Yes, I absolutely agree 100%. IBM has find a very good and powerful
combination in Java and OS/2.

Good kernel/system with good API/virtual machine who can be a good
competition to many legacy NT and Unix solutions.

Quote:> ZD (and most press) just hate OS/2.

I tried to find the news on other sites (like InfoWorld), but unfortunately
it was only PC week who I have seen it on (so far).

The one (or only?) good thing one can say about PC Week is that their news
section is very fast (at least the www one on internet).

1. IBM announces push away from OS/2 as they gear up for JAVA?

http://www.msnbc.com/modules/exports/ct_infobeat.asp?/news/202306.asp

        Follow this link and you will find an M$NBC news article that states
that IBM is pushing away from OS/2 to other platforms.

        WTF?  What "OTHER PLATFORMS" are out there that aren't M$-Windoze that
have near-perfect DOS support and excellent 32-Bit support?

        ^&*$%&^%$%^$ company has a perfect platform and gets stupid about it
again.
