  • Part of the conversation:
    • You're not supposed to be running OS/2 yet, we haven't finished evaluating it.
    • Relax, this isn't OS/2, it's Microsoft Windows/386...
    What the hell! So what was supposedly so bad about OS/2 and good about Microsoft Windows, that the latter didn't require official approval?
  • I think I still have a copy of Windows/386 on a small stack of 3.5" floppy disks. I never used that though - MS Project 1.0 came with a copy of Windows 2.0.

    This was all on dad's computer. I was just an itsy kid at the time.
  • Aah, the 80s. The days where x386s were machines of incredible speed, where all you needed to connect yourself to a vast network of a dozen computers was a 1200bauds modem and a BBS phone number, and where Wolfenstein was all the rage...

    Those were innocent days. I miss them, sometimes. :-)
