      Though I agree about windoze on any machine :-) , that rule would leave me
      out then. OS/2 only ran on 286 or better machines and a very limited
      subset of PowerPC machines. Not all 286/386/486 machines were in the same
      league. IBM's PS/2 line with MCA bus was a marvel of technology for the
      time and still has a loyal following and is actively collected. Both
      PS/2's and OS/2 have unfortunately met their end of life.
