Anyone that have any sort of original OS2 media of 1.0, 1.1, 1.2 and 1.3 ? Just for the fun of it would be cool to get the hands on it!

Have you tried http://www.ebay.com ? (using the search 'os/2' or 'os2' ? ). I have found different OS/2 versions up for bids and OS/2 programs. I try to check it on a regular basis (if I find one, I will come back with the url).

According to the site, it is still 'shrink wrapped' in its box. This is the first time I have seen it for version 1. As of 08-26, there is about 3-4 days left to the auction (IIRC).

It is not often one sees one - especially if it is still in its shrink wrapped box.

Damn! I missed this item, my gfx card broke down yesterday so I missed out the ending of the bids! Currently now using my fileserver to surf with.

Another one (?). The bids are still rather low. There is only about a day left on the auction.

Right, I manage to get my hands on this one for $34.67 ! Next problem is to get them to ship to Sweden - really hope that I can get them to arrange for that...

I have the original OS/2 1.0 Extended Edition with database and stuff included. I'll keep it though. According to Michal Necasek it's quite rare.

yes, it's very rare. Friend of mine at IBM had all the version in origianl boxes but they went into waste bin a while ago. Before I hade the chance to say that I wanted them.. <grrr>. Hmm My oldest original OS2 I got is the v2.0 and as well the the so called Golden Beta CD (it's golden as the colour ).

I'm curious to see how well the 1.3 version performs on a new system and if it after all works. Guess that large disk will give some headache and that the newer drivers won't work. So I really have to dig after a small disk as well I guess

It is a shame he did not try to sell it on eBay.com (it might have been before it was popular[?]).

Did they (the sellers) able to mail it to you?

Yes, they will ship it (I hope that they already done that) to me for an extra cost of $27.00 so the total cost for it will be $61.67 for a OS/2 v1.3.

Have at look at Michals OS/2 history article in the VOICE Newsletter that deals with that version. IIRC he mentioned something about patching a driver. If you ask him, I think he'll give you a copy.

Hi, Kim,

I've found a number of older versions of OS/2 by looking around thrift shops that sell software donated to them, though no 1.x versions.

All of my 1.x versions (IBM 1.2 - shrink wrapped and Microsoft 1.1 OEM for Fujitsu computer) both were found on eBay. The seller for the Microsoft version has a box of Microsoft OS/2. They are OEM (original equipment manufactured) floppies shrink-wrapped by themselves; ie no box, manuals, etc.

On eBay you can set up a search agent with your account, so that you receive emails regularly. Unfortunately, I seem to get a lot of "OS" stuff (OS X, Amiga OS, etc) as the "/" is filtered out. Hmmm, got ot work on that one.

Looks like I'm too late, offering, I have IBM Versions OS/2 1.2 and 1.3 sitting on the self in Boxes. Wish I saw your post sooner would have asked for shipping costs only.

Last couple of months sifted through my stacks but I will be posting OS/2 Versions from 1.2 to 4.0, OS/2 LAN and Warp Server as well as my librry of OS/2 books lots of programming. plus OS/2 Magazine,Professional collections.

Keep your eyes open over the next couple of weeks and month OS/2 Fans.
