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!"

Heh... I remember how much flak OS/2's WPS got from some Windows 3.1 users because of its heavy use of the right mouse button for context menus and the like. It really was an issue for some of them ... until Windows 95 came out, of course, and then those features were "advanced" and the wave of the future...

Strangely enough, PC/GEOS (the environment under Geoworks Ensemble) also use the right button to drag files, so it wasn't just IBM that had that idea. :-)

Oh... Which is better. CONFIG.SYS, or a much larger registry that can't even be edited without special tools? I know which one I choose!
