Press Release - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
"We are extremely pleased to announce that IBM will be
both a presenter and an exhibitor at Warp Expo West," said
Rollin White, Warp Expo West Chairman, to a delighted OS/2
crowd of businessmen, network engineers, software vendors
and other OS/2 enthusiasts attending the recent general
meeting of the Southern California OS/2 User Group.
"IBM will be sending members of their national team to
give our Warp Expo West guests more information on both new
and existing IBM products for the OS/2 platform," continued
White, "and we shall do everything we can to make sure that
these OS/2 products and IBM's representatives are an
integral part of Warp Expo West."
The Southern California OS/2 User Group (SCOUG) is the
sponsoring organization for this September's "A Warpfest Of
OS/2 Excitement - Warp Expo West".
Following the announcement, the audience was elated that
IBM would be present in such force. "This shows IBM's
commitment to OS/2," said Paul Wirtz, Vice President of
SCOUG. "I am personally very excited."
"I've installed OS/2 on so many office machines and
networks over the years that I can do it in my sleep," said
one audience member during a break. "It simply never fails.
It's Y2K compliant. There's a brand new version out. And
IBM will be there with their OS/2 people. I'm going to
suggest very strongly that my entire department attend this
Steve Schiffman, Facilities Coordinator for Warp Expo
West, was also thrilled. "IBM's presence will certainly
attract both more attendees and more vendors," said
Schiffman, "and we will add as many additional rooms as
necessary to ensure that all guests and exhibitors are
accommodated in a comfortable, professional manner."
Warp Expo West is the free international OS/2 expo being
held near Disneyland in southern California. The web site

"This is our third annual OS/2 show," said Terry Warren,
President of SCOUG, "and we've expanded it every year to
keep pace with new developments in OS/2 software products,
including the many new offerings from IBM. Each time IBM
adds OS/2 products or increases the functionality of
existing ones, we get technologically farther and farther
ahead of the competition. We have the Y2K readiness that
other platforms don't; we have IBM's outstanding development
tools; we have their robust server and database products.
The stability of OS/2 and its associated products has shown
time and again that it's both a better solution and less
costly to maintain, and we look forward to seeing OS/2 users
and IBM join together this September for a view of the
future, an OS/2 and IBM future, at Warp Expo West."
