I actually like[d] the drag and drop aspect... This is a case of what you like vs. what someone else likes. In other words, yeah you are most certainly welcomed to your opinion and yours is the one that matters most to you.

Every operating system/UI has strengths and weaknesses.

Yeah, that was kinda the point... it isn't something what makes OS/2 inherently superior, it's just something the parent poster loves and that's it (a love seemingly not shared by too many, seeing where UI paradigms went; it is prudent to simply take note of that when chatting about OS history)

I think the failure of the UI paradigm in this case was as one of the posters said the fault of IBM. They truly dropped the ball with marketing and target audience.
