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!"

Well OS/2 2.1 eas only 20 floppy disks (19+1) if it was 3" High Density floppy disks. Or less than PerfectOffice 6 (27 HD 3") or close to being the equivalent of DOS 5/6.x+Windows 3.x. And Warp wasn't that much larger than OS/2 2.1.

60 floppy disks... haha.. that's a lot of swapping - those were the days ;)
