IBM OS/2 Release History

(1/2) > >>

Martin Iturbide:

I guess I had already posted in the past.
I want to have some wiki pages with the OS/2 release history, just like Wikipedia has with all the Windows releases. -- call it envy if you want to :)

So, I started with IBM OS/2 1.0 and move forward from it.

I have this page "IBM OS/2 1.0" and the idea is that you can move forward by clicking "Preceded by" until you get to IBM OS/2 Warp 4.52. In crazy attempt I'm also trying to document the boxes of each release in different languages. (part numbers, contents, pictures, etc).

As a "draft" attempt I'm also have "IBM OS/2 LAN Server 1.0" until I get to "OS/2 Warp Server for e-Business 4.52".

I have some doubts while trying to consolidate the history and I want to ask a few things and also know your feedback.

(questions will follow)


Martin Iturbide:
Question: When we talk about OS/2 2.0, I'm following this order
- IBM OS/2 2.0
- IBM OS/2 2.1
  -- IBM OS/2 for Windows
- IBM OS/2 2.11

I had organized "IBM OS/2 for Windows" as a sub type of OS/2 2.1, since it I think it is the same 2.1 without Windows (like a "red spine" version in the future Warp 3)

1) I understand that 2.0, 2.1 and 2.11 came with Windows 3.1, right?
2) Was there any IBM OS/2 for Windows but at the 2.11 level? Any box was released? Or "OS/2 for Windows" was only offered on a box as 2.1 version?

Martin Iturbide:
Thanks for the reply Tom. I forgot about that source, which is very good.


I'll have to double check, but I seem to recall there was an OS/2 within the V2 releases which had Windows 3.0 support (as opposed to 3.1).  While I never had a copy of this one, I seem to recall reading about it in one of the OS/2 books that I have.
