OS/2 and eComStation "In this anniversary, I'd like to shed some light about my first-hand experience with [OS/2], especially since I see many attempts at history re-writing and over-simplification, when people compress OS/2's two decades into a single paragraph.

No OS has ever died so many times!

Does BSD count? It's been dying for years now.

Okay, really, I was just kidding. In all reality though, it just goes to show that most software never truly dies, it just becomes a zombie sometimes. I just wish IBM could release the source.
