Comment: 

Most of the world is far behind the English-speaking world in y2k. This report comes from a survey of over 400 French firms.

The Cobol-speaking world is not going to make it if the world's computers are not compliant and interoperational.

Ours is a Cobol-speaking world.

This story is from COMPUTERWEEKLY NEWS (Oct 2).

On the allocation of resources necessary to complete a y2k repair task, see the California White Paper.
