An interesting discussion on this OS2/NT based OS issue. I was messing with a parallel port project over the holidays, and screwed up. Since then on boot up, instead of the the windows XP boot screen, it now shows OS2 Warp. This PC has never had OS2 on it...

Windows NT's original name was "OS/2 NT", and indeed you can still run
text-mode OS/2 v1.x programs on Windows XP.
