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!"

ronaldst,

Thank you for the response. And I apologize for misjudging you.

Keep in mind that a lot of us are strong advocates, but stop short of being fundamentalists. ;-) But I do admit that "bad advocacy" is all too common.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Bad advocacy is worse than no advocacy at all. Not only is it ineffective... but it can actually motivate others to act against one's cause. And it is much easier to destroy than to create.
