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!"

Technically speaking, OS/2 was a success in the retail market, and it was actually the top selling retail software product for a couple of months.

The preload market killed it.

I know what you mean, but in OS terms the distinction is rather important. Voluntary OS/2 sales were quite good, but bundled product makes up the vast majority of the OS market.
