    System/55. Was one of the types of terminals in our old SII/Tandem based publishing system back in the 90s. They had huge, high DPI greyscale monitors for page layout and interfaced with the mainframe backend. It was pretty freaky being so advanced yet so old-skool at the same time.

    I'm not sure that DOS counts as obscure, but Windows 1.0 does!

    Certainly OS/2 was a very solid OS, one of the only ones that I'd consider VM'ing for nostaglia sake. Wasn't OS/2 the birth child of a collaboration between IBM and MS and somehow related to Windows 2??

    Cheers and thanks for the memories!
