That reminds me of when I phoned IBM here in Ireland looking for software
support for their VM mainframe operating system not too many years later,
sometime in the early 1990s.  I spelled out every variation of the name
I could think of but they kept asking me what version of OS/2 I had.
I guess by then the circle had turned again.
