Al, you're confusing me.  You say that IBM extended the life of OV to one
release after V4R5.  Then in your last sentence you say that support for
the product goes away 5/31/01.  That's the date I've heard but that would
mean that V5R1 or whatever they are calling it this week will be GA on
5/31/01.  Am I just being stupid?  That's happened before.

Thanks.

IBM initially announced that OV support would end with V4R5, and the
customers went into an uproar, so IBM extended the life of OV to the
release after (generally accepted by the industry to be V5R1, but if I had
any specific knowledge of this I would not be able to say).  The actual
support for the product goes away 5/31/01.
