Microsoft OS/2 - 1.0, 1.1 and 1.2
« on: March 09, 2014, 06:28:11 pm »

I wanted to recover some OS/2 old history by trying to collect evidence of the existence of some of the older OS/2 versions.

According to some conversation I had been told that Microsoft OS/2 1.0, 1.1 and 1.2 was released in in several OEM versions. At that time Microsoft didn't have an standard packaged product called OS/2 and offered a customized (maybe some driver) version of each OEM. That stopped on MS OS/2  version 1.3 when it was a standard retail product. (according to what I know).

I only have some photographic evidence that existed (thanks to ebay mostly):
* MS OS/2 1.0 - AST Technologies
* MS OS/2 1.0 - Tandy
* MS OS/2 1.0 - MaynStream
* MS OS/2 1.21 - MaynStreamToshiba
(Pictures are on the Gallery)

But I had been told that also exists
* OS/2 1.0 for Epson
* Compaq versions
* HP versions.
* OS/2 1.1 for Olivetti
* OS/2 1.1 for Nokia
...and possible others.

If anybody has any pictures, images, or something about the existance of this editions, or other that I'm missing please let me know.

Please let me know. I will really like to preserve this knowledge, picture, files and disk images.
