A lot more people than you realize still use OS/2 and don't plan to stop in the next couple decades. I'm one of them. Maybe you need to check out OS/2 - eComStation. There is a lot to love.

I was once a devoted OS/2 user. Loved it, but I eventually had to move away from it. Sure, some people still use it, I can still boot it up sometimes for sentimental reasons (in a virtual machine on my intel Mac) and I couldn't go back to using it on a day to day basis.

I remember it with a great deal of fondness, but both the world and I have moved on, not because OS/2 was itself a bad OS, but because IBM refused to maintain and improve it so that it could move into the 21st century.

I went to windows, left that behind too. Went to Linux, and found that interesting enough that I still use it regularly, but when Apple moved to the unix based OS X, I found my new computing home, and unless Apple does something really stupid, I don't think I will be going anywhere from here for a long long time to come.

This sounds like a "Dear John" letter! It wasn't her(OS/2) it was you!
