OS/2 Warp is IBM's 32-bit desktop operating system that runs on Intel processors. There are two versions: OS/2 Warp Client and OS/2 Warp Server. OS/2 has a long history. It was originally developed by both IBM and Microsoft, but IBM took over development of OS/2 when Microsoft went its own way to develop the Windows environment. The current version of OS/2 Warp runs 16- and 32-bit DOS and Windows 3.x applications (not Windows 9x). Networking services include support for the TCP/IP protocols and Internet protocols.
