Christopher B. Wright is no longer the Editor in Chief of OS/2 eZine, but he'll still be around now and then to see what's going on. During his "retirement" he plans to work more on his web comic strip, Help Desk.

From the Editor
December 1995 -- that's when I first started writing
for a brand new web zine called OS/2 e-Zine!, the brain child of Trevor Smith. It
was the second ever issue of the zine, and the first time I ever contributed anything
to the OS/2 community. I reviewed a product called Object Desktop.
While I am proud of many of the things I did
for OS/2 eZine in its many incarnations, my tenure as Editor in Chief is not one
of them. Were it not for the fact that at one point the alternative to me as Editor
in Chief was that there be no magazine at all, I'd say that I should never have
had the job. Although there's a certain ego boost involved in seeing your name in
the top spot, the truth is that I'm a much better writer than editor, and I have
neither the time nor technical background to do what needs to be done in order to
get this magazine off and running. Robert has experience on both sides of the job
-- as an editor and as a tech -- and is already working on improving the way OS/2
eZine is run. I hope you will all support and encourage him as much as you have
I want to thank the OS/2 community as a whole
for your support, and for your many words of encouragement over the last year or
so. I hope that someday, a well-rested, fresh me will be able to write articles
for OS/2 eZine again. For the moment though, I need to read, sleep, play with my
dogs and take my wife out to dinner.
Some of you may be amused (or astonished) that
I have actually completed my review of MIDI Station Sequencer. I'd like to
apologize to Christopher Hodges for taking so long to post this article... but I
