I have fond memories of OS/2 Warp.  When 3.0 was out, I was working
for a company developing a PC-card (as in PCMCIA) with DOS device
drivers.  Of the three of us working on the project, two used Warp and
the third was forced to use Windoze by our manager.  When the driver
crashed in a DOS-box, we simply closed it and opened another, usually
carrying on;  when the driver crashed in Windoze, it took the whole
"OS" with it and sometimes toasted it, too.  (With the MKS toolkit
along with emx and friends, one came close to the real thing.)
