Windows Calmira XP is no more. "After almost 15 years of Windows 3.1 and 5 years of Calmira XP this is the time to say goodbye to this great project. I had a great time developing this, and I hope you enjoyed using it. As a farewell-gift I made a last version which includes all the graphical enhancements of Calmira XP 4.0, but without the experimental LFN-support; so this is a stable version. Now it's time to search for a new, fresh project."

"Well.. true for OS/2 1.x - it looked a lot like Windows 2.x and 3.x."

Well, yeah, that was what was available at the time.
I also have this faint memory of OS/2 2.1 and Windows 3.11 being visually similar but maybe I remember that wrong. It was more than 10 years ago, after all.
For some reason my original post was modded down. That's odd.

Maybe it's because OS/2 could run Win16 apps natively due to licensing code from Microsoft. In fact, because IBM's compilers were better, it ran them better than MS Windows 3.x did.
