@chucker I still remember my OS/2 WARP phase. It was the best way to run DOS and Windows 3.11 apps (except for some games, I wasn’t some noob, I had like a dozen boot entries for all the EMS settings combos I needed) right up until it wasn’t and it didn’t matter any more because it’s all about that Windows 95 now

@chucker In some ways it was an early glimpse of what XP ended up being (the ability to run early Win16/Win32 apps but with the stability of the proto-NT kernel). In other ways it was a bizarro world design-by-IBM-committee Mac OS 7: the “Presentation Manager” (IBM is bad at names) shell was an “object oriented” spatial navigation system. It even had a fun FORTH variant for weirdo AppleScript (REBOL).

Yep — see Taligent.
