This reminds me of the old joke that made the rounds relating various
operating systems to airplanes and airports.  It talked about various
passenger experiences with "DOS airlines" and such.  My favorite one was
Unix... each passenger arrives at the airport with a piece of the airplane.
They gather on the tarmac and begin to assemble the airplane, all the while
arguing about what kind of airplane they're building.

With OS/2 I have a mental image of bill gates dressed up as charlie chaplin
serving drinks from one of those skinny airplane refreshment carts.
