OS/2! Now that was a system.

Where I'm at, lots of ATMs still run it. (Version 2.1 I think.)

    Yes. Many, many ATM's were built around 2.1, which was the first properly complete and tuned version. It was also the last major version that had MS involvement if memory serves.

    Warp was pretty cool, with the emphasis mainly on "pretty". There was little really new underneath, but the new interface had some nice features.

    After that, the "PCs are just terminals to mainframes" crowd kinda took over and the rest is history.

    A friend of mine involved in developing the replacement for OS/2 in ATM's was kind of nervous about the prospects--but that was some time ago.

      Warp was the first 32-bit OS for PCs, I think. It also had EMX, but maybe that had already been available on earlier versions.

      I used to run a BBS on Warp. It had uptimes of weeks. On a 386 with 8MB of RAM...
