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.

If OS/2 2.1, Warp 3.0 or Merlin 4.0 were still here, we'd be screaming at the PResentation Manager... when it hang up and the OS was still working.

:)

I loved it. I was working at IBM back in 1995/6 when Warp (later Merlin) came out. I was Call Taker Level 1, then 2 then "Specialist". We had great customers in the Latin America Region.

OS/2 Was lovely. We ran the IBM BBS under that thing ;)

Also Lan Manager was nice. AT home I had a LANTASTIC for OS/2 ;)

Those timeeess..!
