Because OS/2 ain't DOS-based, natch. Neither are Windows NT or Chicago,
to give Microsoft their due.
Just because the media neglects OS/2 doesn't mean technical writers can.
It tends to deeply offend fanatical user types (like, say, me).

I wouldn't touch DOS or Windows with a 640k pole (okay, except I switch to
DOS to play Rebel Assault).

Right you are about OS/2. It's just that I have never seen it in use anywhere,
except once at a trade show, so forgive me for offense

Let's not flame each other about OSes, though, O.K.? ;-)
