    Looks like some one else has taken up the OS/2 batten-
    Thomas Byers (DRI)- "You'll have a million people using the A> [MS-DOS prompt] forever. You'll have five million using [nongraphic] menu systems such as Topview, Concurrent PC-DOS, Desq, and those types. But there'll be 50 to 100 million using the iconic-based interfaces."

    Looks like an OS/2 system won't be hard to find at all then, which is nice. I'll probably look into it after I get my TS1000 workings.

    Yes, the infamous 195 / 295 Parallan systems, neat-o for alpha-geeks. Best I knew, IBM withdrew them and either swapped them out for like systems or re-imbursed the customers.

    I am curious, blue... One disturbing impression is the licensing model. The website is not as concise as one might prefer, but it seems to resemble IBM's AIX or AS/400 packages. This is NOT comforting.

    Also, what hardware does it support? If it dropped microchannel support, then it doesn't interest me.
