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!"

OS/2 had 2 binary *.ini system files if I remember correctly. At some point IBM programmers included a Windows registry look-alike in a fix pack in order to edit them. I guess that was just to show how advanced Windows 95 and NT 4 were...

I prefer Linux text files... and I've always had to write down the modeline entry because my monitors were not in the db. With FreeBSD as well. But it's OK, because text is what we read.
