From the Editor
THE LONG-awaited Y2K is here. We hope you and your family and friends had a wonderful crossing of the centuries. I predict that we will have a feisty, challenging first year of the millennium. The signs are already on the horizon: From firms biting the bullet and revamping entire technology systems; to the rocketing popularity of Linux; to the spit-fire explosion of Application Service Providers. To alter an old expression, "Fasten your seatbelts, it's going to be an E-ticket ride!" (If you don't know about E-tickets, let me give you a clue: it doesn't stand for "electronic." Ask someone over 40 :)
Meanwhile, we've got a jam-packed issue for you. Don Murray explains ASPs; Second Opinions explores calendaring; and Corel Corp. and Microsoft Corp. staff reveal their Top Ten Tips for legal "power users." We also welcome our colleague Anthony Paonita, who with this issue, takes over our popular Compare & Contrast column.
As always, we welcome your letters, suggestions,and press releases, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
