Aside from the fact that you'll never hear the
words, "OS/2? What's that?", the biggest reason for coming to Warpstock

appetite, the Warpstock 2001 Event Team is pleased to announce several prominent
speakers for this year's Warpstock conference.

XML in "XML processing on the OS/2 platform." Topics include an overview
