The architecture was similar to nt in some ways (well is more exact to say that nt was similar to os/2), but they selected diferent ways to evolve.
Also Os/2 was a true multitask os, with a good i/o scheduler.
But that was some years ago, now some parts are obsolete, but some other continue working wonderfull (take a look to ecomstation).
You can digg more about os/2 at os2 world and some other pages.
I totally agree with the above. I think eCS is the best version of OS/2. http://www.ecomstation.com (IMO).
OS/2 World is an excellent place to get OS/2 and eCS support.
I look forward to one day have a dual boot of eComStation and ReactOS. It would be great to have two great OS's on one pc.
