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. An OS/2 user named Roger Perkins wrote to OS/2 newsgroups ten years ago: "Here's to OS/2's 10th Anniversary on April 2nd! No OS has ever died so many times!"

I really don't think that MS own much of the code, especially after the big rewrite of 1999.

Probably true. However...

They do own the HPFS licenses, but OS/2 is not really dependant on that filesystem anymore.

Given that OS/2 can't boot from a JFS partition, I'm not sure I agree with your assessment. :-)
