Subject: What would you be doing now

-
 
+
-
 
+
-
If you were one of those those rabid DR-dogsin the UK what would you be
+
-
doing about now. .. If I were DR development, I would be hard at work on
+
-
a release 5.1 that would match everything we have in Dos 5.0 plus .. Our
+
-
official strategy implies we top them with Dos 5, which we will do, and
+
-
then we're in the drivers seat ..
