OS/2 Sites

OS/2 Sites
last updated: 07/19/96

Welcome to my collection of OS/2 Home pages, Gopher Sites, Users Groups and, well basically anything to do with OS/2. I realize there are other home pages for OS/2, I know since I have been to most. What I have tried to do here was to put together as complete a listing of information as possible. I used web engines and other net utilities to scan everywhere I could, and then collected them all here in one place. What makes this Web Site different from others? Perhaps only that it is an alternative, however I have tried to make it different by being complete and most importantly, up-to-date. Well, have fun. I really hope you will find this site to be useful. I have run a BBS for over 8 years and so I guess this is a natural progression using a new platform etc... If you get the time, visit my regular home page at http://www.auburn.edu/~lestewm/welcome.html or select the icon at the end of this document. Comments and suggestions are welcome on my home page.

and Sites

Probably one of the original OS/2 sites and still one of the most complete and up-to-date is the Urbana-Champaign OS/2 Site maintained by Jack Tan. As well as serving as a host for many original OS/2 documents and tid-bits, the UIUC site has many links to other OS/2 sites.

PC Lube and Tune is a Service Station and convenience store at Exit 130.132 on the National Information Highway. An ordinary Service Station provides gas, sodas, repairs, maps, and advice.

OS2Web is the site maintained by the Northern New Jersey Users Group. Without a doubt, this is probably the most complete listing of WWW sites available on the net. Also is a mirror site for the OS2 Warp Pharmacy.


Remember in the old T.V series theme song from Gilligan's Island? Sometimes the proffessor and Mary Ann were individually listed and sometimes they were simply refered to as "and THE REST" Well, here are "THE REST" of my OS/2 WWW sites. As time becomes available I will try to provide expanded information for each site, but for now, they are "THE REST"

The OS/2 Warp Pharmacy is mirrored at several sites around the world. The primary site is the Australian home site and as such will always be the most up-to-date, however you can often be better served by using a mirror site closer to home. For that purpose, we have listed the primary mirror source, and all mirror sites that we are aware of below.

IBM OS/2 Users Groups Pages

User Groups are perhaps the backbone of OS/2 support. Generally user groups meet together at regularly scheduled meetings and discuss and have presentations related to OS/2. Below are the WWW home pages of some of these user groups. Notice the index link. If I do not specifically have a user group listed, then it is probably listed in the index of user groups.
