Atlanta Targeted for Third Annual OS/2 Conference and Exhibition

The Board of Directors of Warpstock, Inc. (http://www.warpstock.org) has set the date for its third annual OS/2(TM) conference and exhibition, Warpstock 99. The event is set for October 16 and 17, 1999, and will be held at the Georgia International Convention Center (http://www.gicc.com), located one mile south of Atlanta's Hartsfield Airport. The event was officially announced on an Internet Relay Chat channel hosted by OS/2 Voice (http://www.os2voice.org) and attended by OS/2(TM) users from around the globe.

With the recent release of Work Space on Demand 2.0(TM) and the anticipated release of an entirely new version of OS/2 Server, Warp Server for e-Business(TM) there is renewed interest in this powerful operating system. Recent cross-platform application upgrades available for OS/2 include StarOffice(TM) 5.0; Netscape Communicator(TM) 4.04; and Symantec AntiVirus(TM) 5.0. According to event organizers paid attendance was greater last year than the previous year, and is expected to nearly double this year.

The previous two events presented workshops and presentations designed to provide the kind of community support that is usually associated with the Linux phenomenon. Warpstock has also provided independent OS/2 software developers a forum to exhibit and sell directly to users. Social events are slated to be held at the Atlanta Sheraton Gateway, which adjoins the convention center. Registration costs and early registration discount information will be released in early April.

OS/2(TM) is a registered trademark of International Business Machines, Inc.
Warpstock, Inc. is a nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing the OS/2 community together every year.
