Back in the '90s, when I started working in the IT biz, Microsoft was still fighting for total supremacy of the server operating systems market. One of the challengers was IBM’s OS/2. There’s some history behind Microsoft and IBM’s battle for the desktop and server operating systems market but OS/2 faded away - or so I thought.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
