    The last time I saw OS/2 Warp in the wild was a few years back when one of the local ATMs crashed.

    Also the reason that I'm trying out all these random operating systems is because I recently purchased a "new" laptop for cheap off've eBay, and I fancied using something other than Windows or Linux for once.

    Working at what used to be an IBM Semiconductor fab, I still see some old machines run OS/2 Warp...

    So near and yet so far away. It turns out that I am going to go with a Linux distro after all, but I can't decide which one out of TinyCore, antiX or SliTaz.

    From what I understand from googling those three terms together, you're looking for a Linux distro small enough to run from RAM. I also now understand that there is one called Puppy Linux that you are not considering. Which leads me to my question...

    @Cerbera Why do you hate puppies?

    What an unconscionable idea!

    It would be far more ethical to put them on the top of the organ donor register, so they can bring some real benefit to the world. For starters, each could lose about five litres of blood without undue discomfort.
