The OS/2 Story #2: Prepare to be Warped
Play • 46 min
IBM and Microsoft worked together to create OS/2, a next-generation operating system, but the future of OS/2 was left in IBM's hands after Microsoft left the project. Faced with marketing troubles and increasing competition from Microsoft Windows, IBM pushed forward with OS/2 2.0 and OS/2 3.0 Warp. Hosted by Corbin Davenport, guest starring Cody Toombs.
