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!"

I was probably 13 when OS/2 2.0 came out. I went to Egghead and bought a copy on 5 1/4" disks. It was barely runnable on my 386 25MHz with 4 MB RAM. I was disappointed, but still ran OS/2 as a secondary OS through version 4.0 (on faster machines of course ;) ). Good memories.
