Today I went into the bookshop about 25 kms away from my house, and I noticed there was OS/2 2.0 in a box with sealed manuals and diskettes for $35 canadian. Should I get it? $35 seems like a bit much, and that guy usually overprices his books.

You serious? Buy it up! It's a piece of OS history right there. You might be able to sell it on Ebay as a collector's item.

I suggest you buy it, because it is a piece of history like what XX55XX said, and OS/2 2.0 > Windows 3.0

Probably not, the guy doesn't sell much, he is only in it for hobby, but he has probably 500,000+ books.
