1989
Used it briefly when the Presentation Manager was first introduced but even with the better OS foundation couldn't pry me from my Mac
1989–1990
I bought an PS/2 model 80 so that I could run OS/2.

Was a truly brave and virtuous engineering effort, but the market was already voting with its feet and moving to something more um commodity over-priced.
1990–1995
1.0 thru 1.3 (the VESA driver!) as well as the Microsoft/IBM OS/2 2.0 betas thru Warp. I loved the 2.0 Icon Editor, lost many hours in there.

1993–1997
Bought OS/2 Warp 3.0 in 1993 and installed on my 486 PC. Loved it and 4.0 for the next 4 years but sold all my OS/2 software when I knew IBM was not going to do anything more with it.
1993–1998
1993
First job was helping port an OS/2 app to Windows 3.1. Had to handle some tech support calls on the OS/2 version, about which I knew absolutely zero--most of the time, I was learning along with the customer on the line.
1995–1996
I wonder why this product died out.
1995
Summer before my senior year in college, interned at CIGNA and there were some systems that I worked with that had this bizarre and foreign UI. That was OS/2.
1998–1999
1999
Tried this out briefly when I was exploring a lot of different OSes.
