The 'best' 'prepackaged' version of OS/2 to have is probably the one
called 'DemoPkg'. Back in the day it was for IBM and Business Partners
internal use only and - as the name suggests - included an OS/2 system
preconfigured and installed with a whole bunch of interesting
software. Came as a set of several CDs. Not that easy to lay your
hands on these days.

'No greater love hath a man than he lay down his life for his brother.
Not for millions, not for glory, not for fame.
For one person, in the dark, where no one will ever know or see.'
