OS/2 and eComStation The Register is running a very interesting article by Dominic Connor, telling the insider story about OS/2 1.0/1.1 development in the old days. From the terrible management in IBM, to the hilarious coding practices of Microsoft, there's lots of stuff in here - and it's only part one. "The unholy alliance of IBM and Microsoft unleashed OS/2 25 years ago with a mission to replace Windows, Unix and DOS. Back then, I was a foot-soldier in that war: a contract bug hunter at Big Blue. Here's how I remember it."

Ah, the wonders of Southsea ;-) Carbuncle on the arse of Portsmouth. I literally LOLed at that.

I live not 10 miles from Southsea and probably closer to the North Harbour site. I've driven past it a few times - grim looking. Never seen the offices in Winchester, can't imagine they're much better. Never knew we Brits had so much to do with OS/2's development, makes me almost proud.
