Personally, I don't consider WfW 3.11 all that impressive, especially when it requires a 386 anyway. You can tell that I hate the MS OS/2 2.0 fiasco quite a lot: http://yuhongbao.blogspot.ca/2012/12/about-ms-os2-20-fiasco-px00307-and-dr.html

And I didn't mention the CMD640/RZ1000 in this blog article, where basically the two IDE channels was not really independent, leading to data corruption in multitasking OSes. Let's just say that if OS/2 2.x actually replaced DOS/Windows instead of turning into an entire fiasco, these hardware would not likely have shipped with the problems.
