Good idea.... out-of-production... but now that I think of it, that can
also use some work.... Windows NT 3.51's out of production... and so are
300-400 Mhz Alphas!!! How about "out -of-production by 2 phases*" would
that work?
*A "phase" is the time when the product is used, IE Windows 3.1 is outdated
by 1 phase, as there was one major product that changed the way that we
worked, and it was aimed at the same market as Win 3.1 was,
