OS/2 Will Run Windows Applications Again

IBM’s OS/2 operating system was once lauded for its ability to run DOS and Windows applications. But, since the release of Windows 95, 32-bit Windows applications haven’t been supported. That situation may change soon. Connectix Corp. Tuesday unveiled Virtual PC for OS/2, along with product development and marketing help from software developer InnoTek Systemberatung GmbH and the distribution support of Serenity Systems. The software promises to let corporate users run both Windows and OS/2 applications on one PC. Using Connectix’s virtual machine technology, any x86 operating system can be loaded under the “host” operating system.
