I used OS/2 for a couple of years in the late 90s. I bought Warp 3 and upgraded to Warp 4 a year or so later. I loved it! It was stable and far more configurable than Windows. Once I added Stardock's Object Desktop to it, I had the perfect system. OK there was one flaw. I couldn't find any software for it and I couldn't afford the subscription model IBM was pushing so I couldn't get updates. That's what killed it for me and I was very sad to see it go. Windows was never quite as fun. However, I am getting into Linux now and I see some real possibilities (I'm actually becoming quite the Xandros fan).

Anyways, I admire the people of VOICE who have hung on so admirably. You've got a great OS there. Good for you!
