Not me. The GUI is nice, but for me the big drawing point for OS/2 is the CLI. I like having a sophisticated command line environment (in my case a mix of 4OS2+4DOS) where filenames retain case but are not case sensitive, and I think REXX is a nice scripting language (though I also use Perl under OS/2 on occasion as well as 4OS2 batch files).

Linux isn't bad, either, and DOSEMU is fairly seamless these days, but bash isn't 4OS2.
