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!"

OS/2 was a joy to develop upon - clean fully documented API... and if it didn't do what the API said it should, it is a bug (APAR?) and IBM would fix it (at least they did in the early days).


Sure. The win32 API is great. Thank god for http://msdn.microsoft.com
