OpenBSD's lack of support for GPT and USB 3.0 are enough to dissuade me: can not run on my hard drive.

I ran OS/2 through Warp 4 (32-bit) until the single-digit days of April 2001, when following a crash, chkdsk ran automatically on reboot, ran amok and trashed my hard-drive data.

I was never able to boot OS/2 Warp after that, even from floppies.

64-bit OS/2 Warp?  I never heard of that, thought IBM abandoned OS/2 long ago.

But there is a not-well-known successor eComStation (www.ecomstation.com); I browse that web site very infrequently.

I imagine OS/2 Warp and eComStation have fallen behind FreeBSD for hardware support over the years.
