The History of OS/2

Found on HN: “The History of OS/2”, a series of articles by Michal Necasek originally hosted on the now defunced (, mirrored on Rob Landley’s homepage. (Be sure to have a look at the local mirror index.)

I’ve only had a look at the first article on the beginnings, yet, but it’s certainly an entertaining write-up.

I used an ESP automotive emissions analyzer at work to inspect and certify many thousands of California cars and light trucks for their registration renewals. It had been installed in 1997, and I used it until it was replaced in 2017. It ran OS/2 Warp.
