OS/2 and eComStation IBM pretty much slammed the solid oak door on open sourcing os/2. "As stated in our response to your September 2005 letter we have considered the positioning of os/2 and open source several times in the past, and for a variety of business, technical, and legal reasons we have decided to not pursue any os/2 open source projects."

OS/2 contains complete details on SMB/CIFS something that Microsoft does not want public.

Then what did the PFIF just get from Microsoft for 14,000 euros? This year's Betty Crocker cookbook?
