I read a “rumination” recently that went something like this:

You know that strange feeling you get when you hear that some famous person has just died, but you had thought that they were already dead?  On the one hand, you’re happy to hear that they weren’t dead, but then again you are sad because now they are really dead.

Thats sort of like how I felt when I saw this article about IBM pulling the plug (aka ending support) for *gasp* OS/2!

I actually have a copy of OS/2 sitting on my shelf behind me here. Version 2.0, with some 20+ 3.5” installation diskettes.

<sigh>

OS/2; RIP

 

Got any good OS/2 eulogies you’d like to share with us?
