BP6 and OS/2

Post by axelmasok » Wed Feb 20, 2013 3:41 am

Hi die hard bp6 fans!
My machine still sits close by at all times, I fire it up for fun sometimes.
More as it was the anniversary of OS/2 recently I have been somewhat tempted to load it on my bp6 for fun.
I can't remember ever loading it on this machine so am wondering if any drivers work. We shall see.
Haiku would be fun to run one day.
Ah well let's see how it goes!

What a nightmare OS/2 is to install. The memories are flooding back.
I've resorted to eComStation 2.0.
Runs nice with SMP kernel. ECS is a world away from warp 4. I'm even slightly impressed.

It looks like there are more BP6s in action than we think. Way to go!

Yes mine still works.
I have kept it as my last remaining retro machine.
I loaded XP on it and found it very hard to get working properly.
MS looks to have broken Direct X on purpose so it won't install. Bastards.

I'm currently running Win2K. I'm finding that more and more of my equipement is retro nowadays. Perhaps it's time for an upgrade.
