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.

IBM does not own the source, big portions were written by Microsoft.

I doubt Microsoft owns any OS/2 source code nowadays.

The real answer is why should IBM pay huge amounts of money to clean up/verify the source code and release something that they fought hard to phase out?
