OS/2 and eComStation While browsing some OS/2 news websites, I stumbled upon the usage tutorial included in OS/2 2.1 at GUIdebook (an invaluable website for (G)UI fanatics such as myself). To set the mood: "This tutorial describes how you work with the objects (small pictures) on your screen. Some objects are folders, which contain other objects. Your screen is called your desktop (pictured on the right), which is a folder itself." Have fun, boys and girls, in 1993-style.

Still using OS/2 at work

At work the HMC (Hardware Management Consoles) are running OS/2 for the Z Series Mainframe IBM. That is the only interaction I ever have with it and I think a freind of mine gave me a new box set it would not install because the hardware was to new.

It would have been interesting to think what might have been if OS/2 would have been the 'desktop os' and MS would have not got the strangle on the market...

No, they're not. They run linux with a GUI application made to resemble the old OS/2 HMC.
