OS/2 and eComStation Many OS/2-eCS users knows that we are currently requesting signatures to ask IBM to open source OS/2 (or at least the OS/2 components that are possible to be opened). We are getting close to send the petition, so if you haven't sign yet, go ahead!

I donít think this will help much. This came up before and somebody mentioned that there is source code in OS/2 that is licensed and IBM canít open source. There is source from Microsoft in there somewhere to (OS/2 was a collaboration all the way at the beginning remember?) and it would cost IBM money to remove those parts.

But hey sign the petition anyway. It might just help.
