Member since:

The vast majority of the OS/2 users that I've known since I started using OS/2 back in 1992 have moved to the Linux world from OS/2, not to the Windows world.

Some took a detour through BeOS, and a few have ended up with Solaris, a BSD, or MacOS X, but Linux is where most of them seem to have ended up.

That makes sense, at least to me, since OS/2 was a very popular solution among PC hobbyists as much for its "alternative" nature as it was for its relative technical excellence, and Linux is the logical successor on both fronts when compared to Windows.

A few did move to Windows NT 4 and later NT releases from OS/2, but Win9x wasn't really a common choice that I'm aware of (with the main exception being gaming).
