If I'm mistaken, it came out just before IBM released Win95. :rolleyes: :D

Sun Solaris is another one, but I doubt anyone here uses it even though it's probably the most powerful OS, either that or Unix.

Yeah, IBM 0S/2, and I think they have a few more brands as well.

I use that at school all the time.

Cool, I have been reading a lot of good things about Solaris, in a non biased book on operating systems concepts. I can't blame the vendors for everything. It was IBM who pioneered the concept of a virtual machine, and Sun Microsystems capitalized on it with Java. Next will be Linux capitalizing on it, and I'll be breathing down the source code.

Solaris 2.6 here, not as much fun as *BSD though.

>but I doubt anyone here uses it

Do you use it?

I only wish. I'm just studying it in a book about operating system concepts. Is 2.6 the latest model? It's running on a non intel microprocessor? Is it called Sparc ..and it's 64-bit?

I can remember programming with C Set++ running on OS/2 Warp.
It's a shame they stopped with OS/2.

Okay, we really didnt need another one of these but since its here, and has more options, I removed the previous thread. We didnt need two of these floating around on the top of the GD. (Just to let anyone know where it disapeared to and why.)

Home:
Windows XP, Home Edition;
Windows 98 (1st ed.);
Windows 95 (actually formatted off and replaced by Linux :p );
Debian GNU/Linux 2.2rev6.

School:
It varies by whatever computer I happen to be on, but they are mostly
Windows NT 4.0,
Windows 98,
Mac OS (Classic 8.0? -- for Adobe Photoshop).

"OS/2 Warp" (versions 3.0, 4.0, and newer) are IBM products; however, OS/2 2.1.2 (or whatever the last pre-Warp version was) was codeveloped by IBM and Microsoft. The product actually split into IBM OS/2 Warp 3.xx and Microsoft Windows NT 3.xx after that.

Who picked OpenBeOS? Technically, they haven't even released a build. (That's not counting the Beta release of OpenBFS...)
