Having run 2.1 and 3.0, I can verify this.  What's even more amazing is
that DOS apps running in a DOS VM under OS/2 were faster than they were
running under "real" DOS.  This goes doubly so if there was lot of
hardware access (ie: games w/ sound, apps w/ printer stuff, etc.)

I'll always have a special place in my heart for that quirky OS.
