Gravatar Image1 - Right up there with all the people running OS/2. :)

Gravatar Image2 - It's coming, wait for it . . . . It is the sound of all of those R5 shops complaining that IBM/Lotus has dropped support for R5. Six years (maybe a little more/less) that product has been on the market and they still haven't upgraded to R6 or they think that IBM/Lotus should support it "just a little longer." All this means is that you can keep running it, just don't call for support or expect any fixes. Sorry for the rant.
