I am a professional working developer,
and I am still using two OS/2 development machines
to build software, most of the time written in ANSI C,
which is targetted in the end to other platforms like
Unixes or z/OS mainframe, but OS/2 still is the development
platform I like most. And I use it almost every day. The IBM
compilers and debuggers etc. are superb, I also use (old versions of)
Oracle and DB2 on this platform and many own - portable - libraries
for XML processing, for example, and other interesting tasks.

I would like to help Tomas in his efforts, but at the moment
I have no time .. maybe next year.

Kind regards
