Or purchased a computer with it pre installed. I still remember the 36 floppy disk install for os/2 warp, took 4 hrs to install it back in '92. Used it for like a week and reinstalled windows for workgroups. Biggest issue back then was that there was just 0 support from ibm for it and very little support for hardware unless you purchased specifically off their hardware list..
