    Very interesting read. I personally never got to use OS/2 much (only at work, but there I was not allowed to experiment :) ), but I liked it for its innovations at the time. But if I recall right it was more expensive (here in Sweden at least) than NT and NT was gaining more momentum at the time. You had to guess who was gonna win...
