OS/2 and eComStation Now this is one for the rumour pile. Yes, a rumour about a long-gone (mostly) operating system that lots of people have fond memories of. Barbara Darrow, Senior News Director at SearchDataCenter.com, claims that IBM is mulling over a reintroduction of OS/2. Wait, what?

OS/2 Warp 3.0 came on floppies. It wasn't until Warp 4.0 that it came with an install CD.

Correction! The "original" OS/2 Warp 3.0 came on floppies, but the OS/2 Warp 3.0 Connect came on floppies and CD-ROM.

Actually, my copy of OS/2 2.1 is also on CD-ROM, but it had limited cd drive support (but I remember it worked on my SoundBlaster Pro attached CD-ROM).

I still have the box sets of OS/2 2.1, 3.0, 3.0 Connect, and Warp 4.0. :-)
