OS/2 and eComStation "OS/2 has many applications that had been created by companies, individual developers and hobbyists. Many of these applications still works under the newest version of eComStation and have demonstrated a good quality. The only issue is that they are turning into abandonware since developers had switched to other platforms, but there is a chance to extend their life with the 'Open Source Long Live Elixir'. Here at OS2World.com we will like to make a call to OS/2-eCS developers and ex-developers to open source their creations. We believe that the software can be expanded for the benefit of the community and allowing a learning experience from the code of these applications."

"Microsoft has nothing to do with OS/2. It is an IBM product."

Wrong, you'd better go back and study your OS history a bit. OS/2 has everything to do with Microsoft since they are the ones who wrote it. IBM didn't take over writing it until OS/2 Warp 3.0, and even today it still has a lot of copyrighted Microsoft code.
