OS/2 and eComStation While browsing some OS/2 news websites, I stumbled upon the usage tutorial included in OS/2 2.1 at GUIdebook (an invaluable website for (G)UI fanatics such as myself). To set the mood: "This tutorial describes how you work with the objects (small pictures) on your screen. Some objects are folders, which contain other objects. Your screen is called your desktop (pictured on the right), which is a folder itself." Have fun, boys and girls, in 1993-style.

I miss the good ol' days now ;)

OS/2 2.1 was probably the best desktop OS I've ever tried. I was so pissed when my older brother replaced it with WfW 3.11 ;)

One can change fonts by pure drag'n'drop - change colors through drag'n'drop. You can do pretty much everything that way - even when it doesn't make sense ;)

Try dragging a font (or a color) to the titlebar - and each window can have an independent look. Not bad. - and add to that the use of PostScript fonts. One couldn't be happier.

My first true love ;)
