Plus - the DOS support

OS/2 (in it's) 3.0 days had absolutely marvelous DOS support. So if you have some old DOS-only game which absolutely refuses to run in DOSbox, then OS/2 might do the trick. But it's been some time since I had the pleasure...

I remember installing OS/2 Warp (3.0) on my computer at work (back then, it really was MY computer!). It was a 486 DX-2 66 with some ridiculously low amount of RAM, like 8 or 16 MB. I was playing around with Windows 3.1 support, and pulled my boss back to make him watch me run 32 separate Windows 3.1 programs at a time. When I tried to launch #33, OS/2 popped up a dialog that told me I had reached the limit for this Windows 3.1 session, but would I like to launch it in another session? Needless to say, my boss was totally blown away.

Yeah, I really loved OS/2 back in the day.
