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!

anyone want to still use OS/2. My lord it has to be the worst piece of interface design ever thrust upon an unsuspecting computing public. I had the misfortune of having to install OS/2 on a machine recently to test browser support for a product our company was working on and I can say without any doubt that OS/2 is down right aweful. The installation process and the usability of the interface was just horrid to say the least. I am not sure why anyone in their right mind would want to still use this piece of junk when there are so many good operating system alternatives out there right now. I think the Open Source community could find better things to do than bring this zombie back to life.
