    I used OS2 on one of my home PCs in the mid 90s. It was the product of IBM and Microsoft “collaborating”. After getting it working well, Microsoft took what they learned to create Windows NT and IBM didn’t have a strategy for getting OS2 on retail desktops.

    My very first PC was a 286 from Radio Shack in 1988. It had the 640 K memory (not MB or GB) that Bill Gates insisted was all that anyone would ever need. It didn’t have a hard drive until I added one a few months later. I booted from a 3.5" “floppy” disk. Then I’d swap out that disk for my program disk, and then another disk for my data. I had a 2400 baud modem and spent much of my time on Link, the Whole Earth eLectric Link. Today, my daughters old iPhone 5 is probably more powerful than the state of the art Sun System we would all dial into for joining in conversations and socializing on the Link.
