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!

RE: Why not just buy the source?

I always thought Serenity Systems (eComStation) had the source, but they're apparently only bundling it with their own software.

The definitive 'end-of-support' date is december 2006 according to Wikipedia. That means any revenue from support will end by that date...UNLESS interest pics up and becomes lucrative again. Because I can't imagine support being lucrative if it's spread across 3 platforms (GNU/Linux, Solaris for x86 and OS/2) as it is currently.
