Lewis Rosenthal

Lewis has been active professionally in the IT field since 1987. His experience with OS/2 dates back to version 2.0, which became the first OS/2 workstation OS rolled out in his accounting & systems integration firm of Rosenthal & Rosenthal, LLC.

One of Rosenthal & Rosenthal's subsidiary companies, Hautspot, LLC, designs, deploys, and manages wireless hotspots and hotzones. Hautspot has been active in the managed Wi-Fi arena since 2004. Rosenthal & Rosenthal also hosts the OS/2 Wireless Users mailing list.

Jan has been working on OS/2 since 1988 and was hired by IBM to work on OS/2 1.0 Extended Edition for a few years. For a major Dutch bank, he worked on architecture, system integration and OS2 software development. In 2001 he founded Fsys Software to continue development of the DFSee utility and continues developing this milti-platform tool on OS/2 using C.

Neil is an OS/2 and eComStation consultant and an eCS reseller. He lives in Santa Cruz, California, and uses OS/2 and eComStation computers in the home office. He first programmed OS/2 version 1.2 on an IBM PS/2 model 80.

Andy, influenced by his dad, started with PCs and the TRS-80 at age 10. He has been using OS/2 since the early 90's and currently works for IBM in software support. He is a contributor to VOICE tips, ODIN, Mozilla, and Uniaud, and serves as Vice President on the Board of Warpstock Corporation.

Dushan Mitrovich

Dushan started using OS/2 in the mid-90s after it became clear that the walls of DOS were closing in. He's a self-employed physicist whose main use of a computer, beside for email and the Internet, is as a tool for doing calculations and preparing reports. A couple of years ago, afflicted by a serious case of wishful thinking, he decided that a simple and obvious way to keep using the beloved eCS while having at one's disposal a Unix-based system that 'just works', is to get a Mac Pro and run eCS on a Parallels Virtual Machine. The resulting adventure, successful after much help, has been both extended and ... 'a learning experience'.
