OS/2 and eComStation "In this anniversary, I'd like to shed some light about my first-hand experience with [OS/2], especially since I see many attempts at history re-writing and over-simplification, when people compress OS/2's two decades into a single paragraph. An OS/2 user named Roger Perkins wrote to OS/2 newsgroups ten years ago: "Here's to OS/2's 10th Anniversary on April 2nd! No OS has ever died so many times!"

The only other OS that immediately comes to mind in the "I refuse to die" department is AmigaOS. Hyperion just released version 4 and yet there's been no new hardware produced for this OS since around 2001.

No other community has such a varied and warped following in my opinion either. It's as if they're a bunch of vultures fighting over the worthless remains of a already picked-over carcass. The bickering never ceases on Amiga.org or Amigaworld.net

I'm an Amiga fan from many years ago and I tend to just lurk on those sites because even the most benign postings will in many cases ignite a flamewar.
