OS/2 and eComStation

In a fascinating example of poor timing, disk images of OS/2 2.0 pre-release level 6.605 from July/September 1991 were missingĀ for over 25 years, only to show up literally one day after the 25th anniversary of the OS/2 2.0 release (big thanks to a very helpful reader!).

This is a pretty unique pre-release of OS/2 2.0, and as such, it's great it's been saved like this.

OS/2 beta AND sdk

I remember being part of the 2.0 beta AND having a copy of the SDK. I think there were about a million floppies to each. I left everything behind when I left the job I had when I got these. I'm sad that I didn't hold on to them because I'm sure my successor would have dumped them.

Life moves on.

I have OS/2 Warp 3.0 on floppies. It was a real joy installing it on my 486DX3/133 MHz. ;) But it was a lot of fun to play around in.

I think one of my versions of OS/2 has 38 or more floppies. It was sure nice when CDs came along.
