A history of DB2

I started working with DB2 in 1990 and if memory serves well that must've been V2.2. And if I recall correctly, though it wasn't a version but only a release upgrade, V2.3 introduced some really new (revolutionary) functionalities like e.g. packages.
Why do I mention this ? Well, Willie Favero started some kind of 'anthology' of DB2 last week triggered by some discussions on the DB2-L List. And as he says, it's like taking a "stroll down memory lane". I really enjoyed the first three and I'm looking forward to read the following posts. Here are the posts so far :
I'll try to add the links as they get posted - and check out if I'm right about those packages . . .
