I worked on such a product but IT departments were hesitant to install OS/2 servers since they lacked the expertise to support them. We ended up rewriting the software to use Win NT instead. For a short time we actually were developing for OS/2 and Win NT concurrently.

The OS I left off my list is Android. I have an Android phone, 2 Android tablets and an Android mini-PC.

Windows 10 Pro x64 x2 Windows 10 Enterprise x64, Ubuntu
 
 

Our use was for running single application, Data acquisition and control systems, so IT managers were not an issue
We used a few versions of OS/2 up to and including Warp.

From 1995 onwards we started to migrate to NT and were fully on NT for Client - Server configurations by the end of 96, when NT 4 was more generally available The SCADA systems used a lot of dedicated I/O and the HAL suited this way of working.

We were so at the cutting edge at that time we used to get the System engineers for the SCADA developers ringing us up for help with systems they'd sold to our competitors We never led them astray of course although it did mean that we could get the software developers to fly out to site to solve issues themselves, that certainly impressed the client

Happy times

The OS/2 looks like something to play with in a VM, but it's $259.

Britton, have you checked VirtualBox Virtual Appliances | VirtualBoxImages.com They might have it.

OS/2 was really in some aspects ahead of its time. Compared to Windows 2.0 which was released about the same time OS/2 was superior in so many ways.

I liked it, quite a lot.

A virtual appliance in this context is a pre-installed operating system on a virtual hard disk. Other type of virtual appliance is a specific pre-installed application running on a specific OS on a virtual machine.

To use a virtual appliance simply download it, create a new virtual machine selecting existing virtual hard disk (your downloaded virtual appliance) and run the vm.

VDI (Virtual Disk Image) is a virtual hard disk format used for instance by VirtualBox.

Hi there
First Real OS'es -- 1 ) Mainframe IBM MVS/370 - running this on an "Emulator" -- HERCULES -- note it's not a VM but emulating real IBM s/370 instructions. Screenshot enc including a TSO session.

2) Windows 3.11 screenshot enc .

(Earlier versions of Windows were just "Toys" -- Windows 3.11 was my first REAL working Network OS that was used in the workplace too).

Cheers
jimbo

I learned on Windows 3.1, and always liked it.
My WfW 3.11 setup is still perfectly useable even today.
The only real drawback with it nowadays is its lack of decent security
so I don't let it (or indeed most of my older OSes) loose online.

Wenda.
