I picked up OS/2 2.1 as a personal choice (didn't like M$ back then either) while I was running my own comic shop. When I sold that I ended up looking for an IT job, and ended up with IBM on the strength of what I'd taught myself about OS/2.
I started on the IBM Australia/New Zealand/South-East Asia OS/2 support desk. Moved to IBM BESTeam support. BESTeam = Business Enterprise Solutions Team - basically I supported every piece of software that IBM produced at the time. Some of them I'd never heard of until people called up about them. Weird job... :-)
I was a LAN Server administrator for a long while (again for IBM) and ended up moving across into Notes while I was there. The rest is, as they say, history :-)
