OS/2.org - where I want to go.

From The Editor

Cinema/2 Update

A few months back we reviewed Cinema/2, a really cool TV viewing application. I am very pleased that Carsten Tenbrink has released an updated version that supports newer SDD drivers in fullscreen mode and adds a number of new features.

Bad Windows 2000

If you use Windows 2000, watch out for its suspend to disk feature. I discovered this month that it does not flush its disk cache before it shuts down, so if you do work on a drive that Windows 2000 can see using another operating system while Windows 2000 is suspended, you have a pretty good chance of having whatever changes you made simply disappear the next time Windows 2000 flushes its cache. That's what happened to a day's worth of my work. I am not impressed.

Interesting Website of the Month

If you haven't already discovered it, the OS/2 Warp News and Rumours page is a great resource which is updated every week or so. Go give it a read.
