As a long-time OS/2 user, I do remember, and damn what a miserable life
that was. As soon as I had wound my BBS down (which was running on Maximus
on OS/2), I had switched my home server around to Linux since I preferred
it way way more. Using any new hardware, or a decent graphics card was a
constant struggle and IBM wouldn't care much.

Support as in life support is as good as none.
