This is a request for discussion of a proposed unmoderated newsgroup
titled "comp.os.msdos.pcgeos".  Please note that this is *not* a call for
votes.  After one month's discussion period, a call for votes will be issued.
Please make sure that your discussion is directed to news.groups.


PROPOSED NAME:    comp.os.msdos.pcgeos
 
PROPOSED CHARTER:

  To discuss and share information about:

    - GeoWorks PC/GEOS and PC/GEOS-based products, including
      but not limited to Ensemble, Pro, Personal Office System,
      and the PC/GEOS software development kit.
                    
    - Other software that operates within the PC/GEOS
      environment.

    - Hardware/software compatibilities and incompatibilities
      pertaining to PC/GEOS.
   
    - Software development for the PC/GEOS environment.


PROPOSED STATUS:  Unmoderated
 
RATIONALE: 

  Subject
  -------
  PC/GEOS is an award-winning graphical environment for MSDOS-based
  personal computers.  It's origins are in the Berkeley SoftWorks
  (now called GeoWorks) GEOS products for Apple and Commodore computers.  
  PC/GEOS provides a Motif-like window environment and a true multitasking
  multithreaded kernel.  Unlike Microsoft Windows, PC/GEOS will run on
  as little as 512KB of memory, 3MB of disk space, MSDOS 2.0, a Hercules
  video adapter, and an 8088 processor.

  PC/GEOS fills a substantial niche by providing a windowing environment
  for those MSDOS-based computers which have limited capacity or performance
  (such as PC/XT's and low-end laptops, notebooks, and PC/AT's) that have
  been abandoned by the resource demands of Microsoft Windows and OS/2.  

  The GeoWorks Ensemble product integrates a set of productivity with
  the PC/GEOS operating environment.  In the GeoWorks Pro product,
  Borland's Quattro SE product is also integrated into the PC/GEOS
  environment.  The Personal Office System products are specific
  productivity tools.  Release of a software development kit is
  expected in 1992.

  Interest
  --------
  In December of 1991, a mailing list was created for discussion of the
  GeoWorks Ensemble product.  In only one month of operation, the list
  has grown to include over 90 subscribers from 10 countries.

  Newsgroup name
  --------------
  Several names have been considered.  They are discussed below, along with
  a recommendation.

  *.geoworks:

    Too vendor-specific.  The charter includes discussion of software produced
    by individuals and companies outside of the GeoWorks company.

  *.geos:

    Could be confused with the Apple and/or Commodore GEOS products.  The
    charter limits discussion to the PC/GEOS environment.

  *.ensemble:

    Too product-specific.  The charter includes discussion of other GeoWorks
    products (such as Pro) and non-GeoWorks products.

  *.pcgeos:

    This is proposed as the best choice.  It adequately describes the 
    intended environment, does not preclude new product package names
    from GeoWorks, and does not disclude non-GeoWorks products (any more
    than "*.msdos.*" discludes non-Microsoft products).

  Location in the newsgroup hierarchy
  -----------------------------------
  Several locations have been considered.  They are discussed below, along with
  a recommendation.

  comp.windows.pcgeos:

    This is consistent with comp.windows.ms and comp.windows.ms.programmer.
    However, PC/GEOS is more than a window system, and the proposed charter
    of the newsgroup includes discussion of the kernel and applications in
    addition to the window system itself. 

  comp.os.pcgeos:

    Even though PC/GEOS requires MSDOS underneath, it acts more like a
    complete operating system than an operating environment on top of MSDOS.
    Nonetheless, all of the other comp.os.* groups are standalone operating
    systems, and so PC/GEOS should probably not be located at this level.
 
  comp.os.msdos.pcgeos:

    This is proposed as the best choice.  It is consistent with the
    existing newsgroup comp.os.msdos.desqview.

DISCUSSION TO DATE:

  Discussion of this newsgroup proposal has not been exactly overwhelming.
  The only discussion I've seen has been a suggestion that the newsgroup
  be named "comp.os.msdos.geos", because the "pc" in "comp.os.msdos.pcgeos"
  was seen as being redundant.

  The only other comments I've received have been requests for information
  about subscription to the pcgeos mailing.  If you'd like to subscribe,
  send a request to [email protected]

This is a call for votes on the creation of an unmoderated newsgroup
titled "comp.os.msdos.pcgeos".  The proposal for this newsgroup has been
under discussion since January 6 1992, and nearly all comments have been
favorable.

A number of people suggested that the "pc" part of the proposed newsgroup
name was redundant in the context of "comp.os.msdos", but since the product
name is "PC/GEOS" and not simply "GEOS", the proposed name stands.  In fact,
there are no changes from the original proposal.

This is a request for discussion of a proposed unmoderated newsgroup
titled "comp.os.msdos.pcgeos".  Please note that this is *not* a call for
votes.  After one month's discussion period, a call for votes will be issued.
Please make sure that your discussion is directed to news.groups.


PROPOSED NAME:    comp.os.msdos.pcgeos
 
PROPOSED CHARTER:

  To discuss and share information about:

    - GeoWorks PC/GEOS and PC/GEOS-based products, including
      but not limited to Ensemble, Pro, Personal Office System,
      and the PC/GEOS software development kit.
                    
    - Other software that operates within the PC/GEOS
      environment.

    - Hardware/software compatibilities and incompatibilities
      pertaining to PC/GEOS.
   
    - Software development for the PC/GEOS environment.


PROPOSED STATUS:  Unmoderated
 
RATIONALE: 

  Subject
  -------
  PC/GEOS is an award-winning graphical environment for MSDOS-based
  personal computers.  It's origins are in the Berkeley SoftWorks
  (now called GeoWorks) GEOS products for Apple and Commodore computers.  
  PC/GEOS provides a Motif-like window environment and a true multitasking
  multithreaded kernel.  Unlike Microsoft Windows, PC/GEOS will run on
  as little as 512KB of memory, 3MB of disk space, MSDOS 2.0, a Hercules
  video adapter, and an 8088 processor.

  PC/GEOS fills a substantial niche by providing a windowing environment
  for those MSDOS-based computers which have limited capacity or performance
  (such as PC/XT's and low-end laptops, notebooks, and PC/AT's) that have
  been abandoned by the resource demands of Microsoft Windows and OS/2.  

  The GeoWorks Ensemble product integrates a set of productivity with
  the PC/GEOS operating environment.  In the GeoWorks Pro product,
  Borland's Quattro SE product is also integrated into the PC/GEOS
  environment.  The Personal Office System products are specific
  productivity tools.  Release of a software development kit is
  expected in 1992.

  Interest
  --------
  In December of 1991, a mailing list was created for discussion of the
  GeoWorks Ensemble product.  In only one month of operation, the list
  has grown to include over 90 subscribers from 10 countries.

  Newsgroup name
  --------------
  Several names have been considered.  They are discussed below, along with
  a recommendation.

  *.geoworks:

    Too vendor-specific.  The charter includes discussion of software produced
    by individuals and companies outside of the GeoWorks company.

  *.geos:

    Could be confused with the Apple and/or Commodore GEOS products.  The
    charter limits discussion to the PC/GEOS environment.

  *.ensemble:

    Too product-specific.  The charter includes discussion of other GeoWorks
    products (such as Pro) and non-GeoWorks products.

  *.pcgeos:

    This is proposed as the best choice.  It adequately describes the 
    intended environment, does not preclude new product package names
    from GeoWorks, and does not disclude non-GeoWorks products (any more
    than "*.msdos.*" discludes non-Microsoft products).

  Location in the newsgroup hierarchy
  -----------------------------------
  Several locations have been considered.  They are discussed below, along with
  a recommendation.

  comp.windows.pcgeos:

    This is consistent with comp.windows.ms and comp.windows.ms.programmer.
    However, PC/GEOS is more than a window system, and the proposed charter
    of the newsgroup includes discussion of the kernel and applications in
    addition to the window system itself. 

  comp.os.pcgeos:

    Even though PC/GEOS requires MSDOS underneath, it acts more like a
    complete operating system than an operating environment on top of MSDOS.
    Nonetheless, all of the other comp.os.* groups are standalone operating
    systems, and so PC/GEOS should probably not be located at this level.
 
  comp.os.msdos.pcgeos:

    This is proposed as the best choice.  It is consistent with the
    existing newsgroup comp.os.msdos.desqview.

DISCUSSION TO DATE:

  Discussion of this newsgroup proposal has not been exactly overwhelming.
  The only discussion I've seen has been a suggestion that the newsgroup
  be named "comp.os.msdos.geos", because the "pc" in "comp.os.msdos.pcgeos"
  was seen as being redundant.

  The only other comments I've received have been requests for information
  about subscription to the pcgeos mailing.  If you'd like to subscribe,
  send a request to [email protected]

This is a call for votes on the creation of an unmoderated newsgroup
titled "comp.os.msdos.pcgeos".  The proposal for this newsgroup has been
under discussion since January 6 1992, and nearly all comments have been
favorable.

A number of people suggested that the "pc" part of the proposed newsgroup
name was redundant in the context of "comp.os.msdos", but since the product
name is "PC/GEOS" and not simply "GEOS", the proposed name stands.  In fact,
there are no changes from the original proposal.
