You might like it if you keep in mind that it's Not Unix. It's more or
less a refinement of the ideas behind Windows and DOS. -Definitely-
PC-centric, although it runs on PowerPC as well.
The last version I used was Version 3. You probably want OS/2 Warp
Connect version 3. The "connect" implies that it has a TCP/IP stack,
which prior versions did not. Version 4 is neat, too, but the UI
changed in response to Windows 95.
If possible, get a copy of OS/2 with a blue spine on the box. The
boxes with a red spine require you to supply your own Windows 3.1
diskettes (which may not work if you have an OEM copy of Windows 3.1)
for Win-OS/2 support. The blue spine boxes have all the Windows DLLs
embedded into OS/2 for Win-OS/2 support.
