Additional observations:


In the latter part of February, "ENEMA EXPO 97 beta edition"
will be held at Kyoto city.

"beta edition"!? Of the product or the Expo? How is this possible? Will
either one have bugs to be worked out by early adopters of the technology?


I sure we all look forward to the day when first-rate products dominate the OS
market here, like, say, ATOMIC ENEMA must dominate in China.


Nonstandard Disclaimer: Happily, I have no connection with any of these
products. But ATOMIC ENEMA just makes me laugh.
