What is VOICE?

VOICE is a nonprofit, virtual user group, devoted to the education and marketing of the OS/2 operating system. VOICE was formed by a small group of OS/2 users who felt they could do something to advance knowledge of the OS/2 operating system, and is comprised of other OS/2 users who feel that something needed to be done with getting OS/2 more widely recognized.

VOICE is not affiliated with International Business Machines (IBM).

*Mission Statement*

Representing OS/2 to I.B.M. and the industry, as well as marketing OS/2 to users and professionals worldwide.

*VOICE Objectives*

  1. Serve as a "virtual", on-line user group for OS/2 users, without a local user group, and to any other OS/2 users interested in VOICE.
  2. Promote OS/2 to the SOHO [small office/home office] consumer and to general computer users.
  3. Provide an effective communication channel between members, user groups, ISV's [independent software vendors], and IBM.
  4. To help OS/2 User Groups organize and promote their activities.

    *Virtual Meetings*

    Weekly IRC [Internet Relay Chat] meetings are held on WEBBnet in the channel #VOICE. Meetings are now held on the first and third Mondday of each month at 20:00 EST (01:00 GMT).
