"The desktop on OS/2 has a lot of functionality not in Windows - not even in Vista."

There are even functions included in the older GeoWorks Ensemble 3 which "Vista" cannot show.

"AFAIK OS/2 is the only OS with a truly Object Oriented Desktop."

This is correct, at least it claimed to be.

"The look is outdated but the engine beneath is great."

It was impressing what you could get out of a 486 with OS/2 where "Windows" was just pain.
