A few weeks ago, I wrote to ask for suggestions on how to deal with a VP
who insists that we switch from Windows 95 to Window 2000 in the midst of a
deadline crunch. Thanks to everyone who took the time to offer suggestions
and sympathy.

As it turns out, I spent many hours testing Windows 2000 with FrameMaker,
Acrobat, Quadralay WWP, and several other pieces of software. I wrote a
report describing all the problems, and explaining why I had no more time
to continue testing. It must have sounded pretty much like an ultimatum,
because the VP assigned a software engineer to continue. Surprise! Except
for one small detail, he came up with the same findings that I did - that
is, FrameMaker and Acrobat seem to work OK (although our testing was
relatively simple), but you definitely can't create online help with
Quadralay WWP without a new Adobe printer driver that doesn't exist yet.

Now that my report was confirmed by a software engineer, our VP is
convinced. We are now officially free to go back to our regularly scheduled
deadline crunch. Thanks again to everyone who responded to my original SOS.
