OS/2 2.0 in Office Space

  1. There is an episode of Law & Order where they are using a computer with OS/2 2.0 on it and the box sitting right next to the screen.

    I have the episode recorded on my DVR. I just haven’t figured out which one it is.

  2. Was watching the Office Space movie tonight for umpteenth time. But this time I noticed an out-of-focus OS/2 box in one scene. Did web search to see if others have noticed and ended up here.

  3. OS/2 Warp is in GoldenEye, most prominently in a scene where the villain’s lair is burning to the ground. I have no idea who in marketing wants to associate their product with that environment, but it’s quite visible.

    • Probably a product of the people behind the nun ads. I wonder if 1.x made any appearance in anything?

      I guess Microsoft learned with all the cringe-tastic surface astroturfing in the NFL.
