IBM and Microsoft worked as a joint development team to develop the first versions of OS/2. OS/2 version 1.0 was released in December 1987. Microsoft ended the agreement with IBM in 1990, soon after the release of Windows 3.0 for DOS systems.
Windows 3.0 shared some source code with OS/2 version 1.3, because of Microsofts involvement in both projects. Most of the Windows source code was rewritten for Windows 95/98/Me, and it was rewritten again for the line of Windows NT operating systems (Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7/8). However, minor parts of the Windows source code still resemble parts of the OS/2 source code. The last release of OS/2 was version 4.52, released in December of 2001. OS/2 is currently being developed as eComStation.
They both use a GUI (Graphical User Interface).
