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!"

Of writing code with VisualAge for C++ on OS/2 using IBM SOM Objects. It was actually pretty advanced for 1995/6. A completely GUI C++ building tool that allowed you to connect events to code or object properties. SOM Objects was a (reasonable) CORBA implementation. Crank the Soundgarden and let's code!

Oh well, on to bigger and better.
