Ah, yes.  OS/2.  There was that magical interval when Win/95 was just a
scheme in Bill's eye, and an ad campaign across America.

The IBM decided to take advantage of the gap by pushing OS/2.  Smart move.
So they came out with the "Warp" campaign.  Stupid move.  They never showed
the product.  Never told what it could do.  Never mentioned that it was
everything Win/95 promised, but it was available NOW.  Just those nuns
talking about their beepers.
