OS/Warp does apparently work.  The problem is that the rest of the world is
MS which makes it diffficult if one is stuck in a system community - like a
corporation or university.  W95 does work better, George, but still a pain:
 too much diddly-sh*t I don't need clogging my hard drive.  Slowly I am
figuring out how to delete these bits.

The thing I think I dislike about MS so much is the quiet insertion of
things like cookies and other connective devices to
MSN......................worse than the government.
