I really miss DeScribe. I should try it in Wine... The Win32 version is
SMOKING fast, about as fast as Notepad (yes faster than WormPad)

No, not from the sounds of it. However, the last OS/2 configuration I had
eliminated HPFS altogether. Get yourself the Ext2FS driver for OS/2 and
read/write in Linux AND OS/2. It worked really well, and no drawbacks.
Remember to rem out the HPFS.IFS driver.

Once I made an entire simple PIM using nothing but desktop objects and settings
(one "To-do" folder, sorted by an EA of [1,2,3,4 or 5] with appropriate icons,
templates for new items, data file objects for memos/notes, unfortunately no
calendar, but IBMWorks PIM was great at that part.)
I ask again, any Window Manager that can do that? Please??

I didn't like it not being seamless. It was a rush to run a completely foreign
environment on OS/2 though. Try networking it and setting the X display to the
OS/2 machine, and running the X program off the Linux server! That's
seriously cool! Let me know how it works.
