W8, so you say how OS/2 "was vastly superior to the DOS/Windows combo most people used at the time, especially from a technical standpoint but also from a usability point of view as well"...

...and then you spend most of your post mentioning its "technical issues which really should never have been there" clearly impacting also overall usability (and of a kind & severity rivaling most troublesome DOS/Windows adventures), showing how it didn't quite measure up after all?

In light of that - I'd say yours "despite its flaws, OS/2 is and always will be up there with the best" would apply just as much, if not more, to DOS/Windows...
