As the title stated, I would like to find out what can I do with the OS/2.
I just pickup a CD copy of the OS/2 Wasp 3.0 for US$10, the entire package shrink-wrapped.
 
Thanks in advance,
Daniel

Well, it is a general-purpose operating system with object oriented
GUI. With Warp 3, you can run most of the 16 and 32 bit OS/2 apps, DOS
apps and Win16 apps. But Warp 3 version from 1994 is quite dated, and
needs a lot of patching to run on current hardware, and newer drivers
are now mostly written for version Warp 4 (4.0 - 4.52).

Cheers,
Martin
