( Taken from the Team OS/2 FAQ
"...Team OS/2 is a highly informal organisation dedicated to telling the world
about the advantages of Operating System/2 (OS/2), an advanced operating
system for personal computers. Faced with a large amount of ignorance and
misinformation about OS/2, Teamers respond by demonstrating the operating
system to others, and educating them about its strengths and weaknesses.
Teamers are all volunteers with a genuine enthusiasm for OS/2 that
translates into a wish to spread that enthusiasm to others...."
Having seen the team in action myself in Argentina
in several computer conventions
, I must say that it pretty much looked like I.B.M.
getting free workforce.
They had these guys doing OS/2 demos and general tech support of OS/2
and voice recognition
products for them, for no pay at all (except for the occasional t-shirt or poster).
None of them got free passes to the convention either, they all got in using the same pass from someone in the I.B.M.
