      IBM. I was actually bidding on a copy of Microsoft OS/2 1.0 (Epson
      branded) on eBay today, but it went for over $220 which was just too much
      for an Epson Equity version. Had I had an Epson Equity 286 machine or it
      been pure Microsoft branded I would have gone higher. Only Microsoft OS/2
      I own are the 1.3 Tiger Beta releases which is disks only, though I have a
      couple of manuals from the Microsoft OS/2 1.3 release but no diskettes or
      case. It kills me that a former employer threw out 40 or 50 copies of
      Microsoft OS/2 1.3 when they upgraded to OS/2 Warp. Microsoft branded OS/2
      is so freaking hard to find.
