OS/2 1.x series

When programmers will real men. 64k segments and far pointers!

I still remember my first brush with OS/2 16-bit. Radio Shack had technical staff come to their stores in those days. The guy showed me the difference between OS/2 and Windows at that time. They both looked the same. I was hooked. Ironically, I never found a copy of it on shelves for my Tandy 2500XL. ಠ_ಠ

OS/2 2.x and up were nice but didn't have same feel to it.

Ha! Awesome. ;) I kind of miss Radio Shack. Then again I also miss the ACE Hardware that was down the street... just closed. Couldn't compete with WalMart and Home Depot. ;) I gave both Radio Shack and Ace as much of my business I could.

Back in the days when Warp came out, I purchased a special Warp system from Indelible Blue... Even after I moved on to other hardware that system was going strong... gave it to my brother in law.

All you needed was the term "thunking", and you would have had the trifecta of old school fun.
