On what research are you basing your opinion, that the Y2K is no problem for PCs?
We need to be very careful that we are not lulling people into a false sense of
security about Y2K. This is not a trivial issue and it is very disturbing that
this statement is being made on a list for African Information Technologists.
I believe it would be more accurate if you would share with people that the Y2K
problem is a problem for any time/calendar oriented controller, processor,
microprocessor, or microcontroller.
I have a rhetorical question for you - if Y2K is mainly a mainframe problem, are
you willing to take an a 2 hour Boeing 747 flight at 11:00pm on December 31, 1999?
Are you willing to ride an automated elevator at this time?
