Yes, I use both of them.

No it hasn't. IBM are still supporting Warp Server, which is based on
However I've never really been sure about the real differences between
Warp 3 and Warp 4. I suspect anything in \os2\boot would work fine on
Warp 3, as would most of the commands. You can even run cmd.exe from
Warp 4 on Warp 3 and it tells you that you are running OS/2 Version 4.0
when you type VER. I would be surprised if there was more than half a
dozen files different between the latest fixpacks of the two versions.

Is this every likely to work?
I've reached my ceiling of about five Win32 apps which work under
Odin and have been at this point for months. I can't even get Paintbrush
working... And since I don't have a Windows system available, I have to
run the Windows SETUP which comes with everything, and this never works.
