I remember running OS/2 in the 90's for about 5 or 6 years as my primary OS. It was stable, innovative and fun and had a great user community. Although it is outdated today, it was amazing when you consider the low hardware requirements. I started using it when my PC was a 486 with 6 MB of RAM and it ran fine. It seems like there should be a niche for this OS. For example, IBM could strip out the Windows compatibility and other non-essentials and turn it into a fine Mobile/Smartphone OS. Maybe Palm could buy it!
