You never stop learning

I learned something new today I thought worth sharing. I had a number of portable applications in various folders in my user folder which I decided to combine in a single folder for convenience. I expected after I had done that I would have to hunt down various the shortcuts I had and repair them.

Magically Windows had done this for me.

There are a number of features that a lot of folks "wish" were in Windows 7 that are actually already there; they just haven't been "discovered" yet.

I remember, back in the day, that one of the features that IBM OS2 Warp had that Windows 95 didn't was just this. I seem to remember MS explaining that it was one of the reasons that Win 95 was faster and more stable.

Oh I discovered that it didn't work for one shortcut. The reason appears to be that it needed to insert the new path in quotes. Trust MS to get the complicated part right and fail on the simple bit. Ho Hum.

I worked on "IBM OS2 Warp" in Boca Raton Fl and Austin Tx.

Ah, those were the days.

Did you know that if you have a computer that supports virtualization you can install and run OS/2 Warp 4 as a VM?

Yeah.
Started living with W7 RC early 2009. My first encounter in this forum was Shawn Brink. The way he talked to me convinced me to stick with W7 which eventually turn to be the best OS I've been working with.

I'll have to give that a try sometime, just for the memories. The company I worked for used OS/2 on it's servers long after its demise as a desktop OS because it did multitasking better than the alternatives.
