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 author obviously was there when the events happened, and he sounds like he has a lot of firsthand knowledge.

I didn't join the OS/2 ranks until 1992 myself (when the first 32-bit version came out), but I've been there ever since, and I remember most of the events being discussed quite clearly (as clearly as I can, anyway, given that I mainly witnessed those things via the internet or other electronic media at the time).

Thanks for posting this, Thom.
