OS/2 and eComStation "In this anniversary, I'd like to shed some light about my first-hand experience with [OS/2], especially since I see many attempts at history re-writing and over-simplification, when people compress OS/2's two decades into a single paragraph. An OS/2 user named Roger Perkins wrote to OS/2 newsgroups ten years ago: "Here's to OS/2's 10th Anniversary on April 2nd! No OS has ever died so many times!"

If an OS is dead but is still walking doesn't that place it in the category of a lombie OS? brains...fresh brains...

On a more serious note, I remember the quote from Bill Gates where he says that "OS/2 is the future" when he was more friendly with IBM. Gates is a shrewd business person but not such a good fortune teller.
