One of the things that I see missing in the history, though, is that Microsoft wasn't finishing their parts of OS/2 during the IBM-Microsoft OS/2 era,...

I was one of the hundreds of OS/2 developers at IBM. I can tell you this, at the top of every source module for OS/2, there was this statement "Copyright 1987, Microsoft Corporation."

Yes, MS wrote OS/2 - except for the networking layer and the installation programs - the worst parts of OS/2. When I mentioned that the worst parts of OS/2 were written by IBM, I got may ass chewed out royally!!!

My point? IBM dropped the ball on OS/2. Period. Their management decided that the company's resources would be best spent on developing their software on Wondows.

Don't ask me, ask Gerstner.
