Well, acutally, i kinda agree from a different angle. I purchased the
OS/2 compiler and toolkit a while back with the ambition to update some
cobol software that i had written (and marketed) a few years back. Now
that OS/2 is practically a non-issue in the consumer market, i would
like to do a cross platfor upgrade to the win95 compiler, but i have
not received a resaponse from ibm after posing the question.
