for sure.  they spend a lot of money on them, but they don't seem to get
the message out.

os/2 for example.  the os/2 warp, advertised with kids with wild hair. 
if i hadn't known better i'd have thought it was a video game.  not
quite the commercials for serious business products!

what they should have done was scream from the rooftops about the
stability of the product.  i don't know anyone that likes the windows
lockups they always get.  if they'd have made that widely known, they
might have been able to knock microsoft off their perch.
