At what point does OS/2 become irrelevant? Seriously, how many installations are there currently?

Well OS/2 is still being used somewhere, but it is relevant as Win95/98 is these days...

There are very few pieces of software (or platforms for that matter) which are relevant to everyone.

As long as some folks (like myself) can continue to use it effectively, it will still be relevant for them. :-)

it's a lot more relevant, and has more users, than many other OS' featured on OSNews.

It seems to get more flak than many, anyway. Or maybe that's just my overdeveloped persecution complex. :-)
